Foreign Aid: Straight from the pages of "You couldn't make it up".


Recommended Posts

Boris Johnson is about to chair a conference at the UN on Climate Change. According to an announcement by a spokesperson, he will use the conference "...with world leaders at the UN today, to call for more financial from rich economies to support developing countries' transition to net zero".

This would be the same Boris Johnson who as PM of the UK's gov, announced that the UK's foreign aid donations to developing countries would be cut by 29% in March of this year.  If nothing else, you have to admire his brazenness.

Foreign aid is a con job. I remember the US sent foreign aid to Pakistan for gender equality! The very same country that just last week saw a violent mob shoot up a minority village!


Even last years US Covid Relied Bill included foreign aid to Burma. 2 weeks later there was a military coup there.
