Thread Name: BS: Britain To Cut Foreign Aid
Subject: RE: BS: Britain To Cut Foreign Aid
From what I have heard, the government is maintaining aid to countries where the threat of terrorism exists (Pakistan) on the grounds that aid will help curb the growth of same. I always thought that aid was meant to feed the poor and disadvantaged and not to further any political ideal.
Cut the crap politicians and look at our own house first. There are lots of poor and disadvantaged here as well
