    Withdraw foreign aid ??

    Posted by Tasty Geezer on 22/3/2020, 17:43:55

    Just thinking that in this time of serious crisis. Why the hell should we be borrowing billions and still sending money to corrupt governments worldwide.

      There are two sorts of foreign aid.

      Type 1 is sent to agencies to help refugees and allow them to stay in camps close to their country of origin and prevent them all turning up in Calais. As an example, around 8 million Syrians refugees have received aid of this kind and it has allowed Jordan to accommodate and feed 2 million people. Without it these people would either starve or turn up on our doorstep.

      Type 2 is given to dodgy foreign companies on condition that they buy British cars, high end products and arms. Effectively it's a subsidy. We give £X to dodgy dictator, he spends £X minus his cut, plus his people's money on british made stuff. Sometimes there's no stuff and we just get a friend in a useful part of the world.

      You seem to want to stop the aid to dictators thing. If Corbyn suggested this, then I;m sure the usual suspects on here would be screaming blue murder about how he was sounding the deathknell for the british arms industry and our boys would die without modern equipment. And you'd be right to do so.

      So, in my opinion, foreign aid helps those in need and also allows us to look after key industries that would struggle if their order book only came from HM Armed Forces. So it needs to continue.

            The point of foreign aid is to ingratiate UK businesses in the country that receives the aid, not to actually help that country or its citizens.

                      Not really. It's a valid point.

                        Of course it is a valid point and only an idiot would think it isnít.

                            What the fukk are you dribbling on about this time? Considering the money that is going to be needed in this country, it's a reasonable question to ask.

                              Do you really think that the issue hasn't been considered by people who are actually in the know and able to make those decisions? It's quite apparently an outburst about foreign aid in general, thinly veiled as something to do with corona.

                            Every single time some money needs to be spent on something, l always hear stop foreign aid, if we actually did, what would we stop next. Weíve spent that money 100 times over.
                            How about the billionaires who have billions maybe even trillions squirrelled away and the massive corporations put their hands into their pockets for once?

                              Richard Fuller MP ripped the arse out of Richard Branson last week for demanding a bail-out for his poxy airline.

                              He worked out that the 2% interest on his 5 billion fortune for 2 months would've covered everything his employees.

                              Greedy swine, just like that Amazon bloke.
