    Petition signed. I agree, the budget is too high, considering how short of cash many of our own services are.
    I wouldn’t want Foreign Aid to be stopped, but what is badly needed is a major review of where this money goes and what it is spent on.

      I agree with you Glen. But, we must acknowledge that our country is largely populated by uneducated, unthinking, uninformed chancers. This is why so many people are easily seduced by the loonie left and their brainless dogma, idealism and hollow promises. As a society we are our own worst enemies and we deserve the government we vote for. One answer would be a strong leader (like Maggie or Winston, or even Trump), but these types are hard to find. So government carries on bleeding us dry, giving our taxes to foreign criminals, whilst here at home there are British people on the breadline with a ruptured NHS . It will only change if, and when the British people wake up. Sadly, with the deficit still rising and the anger felt across the country, I fear it will be too late.

    I understand that the office that manages and allocates foreign aid, has a budget to give away every year and actually get a bonus when they have allocated it all.
    Now that’s not a way to allocate aid in a responsible and measured way, it’s a recipe for waste and a “let’s get shut of the money ” attitude, so they can receive their massive bonus on top of their very inflated salary’s

    I would very much like to continue such aid, but I am aware that some recipients get, what they do not deserve . Pakistan is a case in point. Their Government, National and Local, are gutless in the matter of their Blasphemy Laws, and a Mother of five, Asia Bibi, has been in prison for seven years, under the death penalty. The Courts know that evidence is totally untrustworthy, but they fear the Islamic Mob, and a number of murders have taken place on this one count.
    I would have thought, that if we wish to be open handed, stop this overseas aid, and let our assistance be felt in larger scale assistance in disaster help. In the short, and immediate term, why not use the money here at home, as our Government is an ongoing disaster of its own, and people are hurting !

    Whilst i acknowledge the lady’s status as a MEP, I doubt whether she, or any of her fellow MEPs, has the power to SLAM anything! Lets be honest, given that the British contingent of MEPs are almost always in a minority, the whole thing seems go to be a total waste of time.

  6. Giving money to Syria is helping to keep Assad in power to continue his corrupt dictatorship and oppress his people. That should be the first to go – we were even giving money to ousted President Mugabe – to spend on what? His palaces or stick in his off-shore accounts? It certainly wasn’t used to improve their economy. The whole foreign aid issue should be revisited and diverted to those in need, not those in greed.
