Britain’s £27 million in Foreign Aid to the Frigging Argies, I just Despair

I would scrap all Foreign Aid tomorrow as most of the cash is wasted, few poor folks benefit and Bankrupt Britain cannot afford to piss away £11 billion a year. In the greater scheme of pissing away cash £27 million is not a lot but to hand that money to the frigging Argies who are demanding that we hand over British Land lived in by British Citizens (viz the Falklands) just fills me with the despair.

Of the £27 million, £20 million is our slug of a£450 million loan from the IMF. That the Argies need an IMF bailout at tall shows why its demented President Fernandez is sabre rattling: because under her stewardship the economy has gone down the pan. But why Bankrupt Britain should have to bail the old trout out is beyond me. But it gets worse.

The other £7 million is our share of an annual EU aid programme which according to EU “Foreign Minister”, aka the Guardian reading former CND spokesperson and total nonentity Baroness Ashton is aimed at helping “people at the poorest end of the spectrum.” She can piss off too just like Argentina and its tax dodging pals at the Guardian. Giving aid to corrupt States which maintain an un-needed spending on military matters is per se wrong. The fact that it is the frigging Argies compounds this crime.

The EU (with the UK picking up 1/7 of the tab) is the World’s largest donor of foreign aid. The list of regimes it honours with its largesse is an open invitation to donate to UKIP.

I am today again wearing a Piss off Argentina T-shirt with pride.

If you enjoyed reading this article from Tom Winnifrith, why not help us cover our running costs with a donation?
