More useless aid heads to Africa

Gordon Brown today pledged that Britain would contribute £8.5 billion over the next decade to inject new impetus into a drive to provide free education to the world's poorest children by 2015.

Why should we have to pay for Africa’s problems? Wouldn’t that £8.5 billion be better spent on our crumbling NHS or our pension pot?

As I have already proven in previous posts aid DOES NOT help. It only makes matters worse. So while the intention is good the outcome will always be bad. Its time to do the right thing and leave them be. Yes it will many years, even decades for them to advance to the stage where we are at now but it will take a lot longer if we keep giving them aid.
