lol doesnt stop you being a twunt.
Aid is all about the idle rich feeling munificent and good about themselves. If aid really is any actual use, why is Africa in exactly the same state, if not a great deal worse after billions were poured in following Live Aid over two decades ago?? Why do these shambolic countries continue to get worse, with no proper sanitation, no proper schools, no infrastructure? It's simple, there is absolutely no impetus to do well if it is all provided for you! Look at our own welfare state. If Mr Cameron wishes to be photographed with the unfortunate poor, perhaps he should give up being Prime Minister and become a Missionary instead.

Stream of consciousness?
So let me get this right then, we give away more of tax payers money overseas yet now talk about increasing taxes on pensioners just in case they need residential care.....What idiot thought that policy up.

Oh and this guy is just a twunt,along with the 39 who agreed with him.
These people chop-down their trees then want aid when it rains and the water runs straight down the hills and floods them! They fail to limit their population and expect us to feed them and their brats! They fail to store food during the good times, to get them through the droughts! They fight pointless wars, over trivia, neglect their agriculture and expect us to feed them! Their rulers sit on solid gold lavatory seats (etc.) whilst their subjects starve and expect us to feed them! Cameron is a gullible idealist, with his head in the clouds. These people will be a constant drain on our scarce resources. All the billions of pounds that we have handed-over to Africa (etc.) over the years have achieved nothing - they are a waste of time and effort. Abandoning them is the right approach - tough but right! Absolutely stop their coming to the UK - it is full.
