Lots of Pommy aid goes to India. Who have aircraft carriers, but can’t feed their people. So the Poms are borrowing a Frog aircraft carrier and feeding the Indians?
Not sure how that works:
The Prime Minister was taking part in a phone-in on LBC radio when a caller who identified herself only as “Anna” accused him of sending money abroad which should be spent on treating sick patients in this country.
The Government currently spends ÂŁ12 billion on overseas aid, an increase of 37 per cent at a time when most departmental budgets are being cut.
Anna told Mr Cameron that she suffered from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and that a drug she needs is available in Germany but not in Britain.
The 68-year-old from north London, who did not give her full name because she said some of her family members did not know of her condition, had been a full-time carer for her husband, but he was forced to move into a nursing home when she was unable to look after him.
She needs the expensive drug because she had an allergic reaction to the usual medication used for her condition.Mr Cameron said that he would look at Anna’s individual case, but insisted that Britain had a “moral obligation” to abide by its promises on foreign aide. He said: “Breaking promises to the poorest people in the world would not be the right thing to do.”He added that if Third World countries were not given help to feed their poorest people, then the result could be warfare or mass migration, which could affect the United Kingdom.
