End "aid" to China now


A couple of days ago, Hunter posted a question to Andrew Mitchell, MP and Shadow International Development Secretary, over at ConservativeHome. Hunter asked why China receives aid from Britain when they, together with Russia, are happy to shaft us on the international stage. Mitchell informed us that China in fact receives £75m from the British taxpayer each year, despite a trade surplus of $23.8bn in February 2007. Astonishing, isn't it?

Hunter would stop "aid" to China, India, Pakistan and Russia. And strict conditions would have to be adhered to - e.g. a commitment to democracy, justice and the rule of law - before we handed a single penny to tin pot dictatorships like Zimbabwe. In typical Ellee mould, do you agree? Do you have any countries to add to the Hunter's list of shame?

Justin, I thought I was mis-hearing things recently when a BBC News presenter announced that Britain was sending as much as 500 million Pounds in an International Aid Package to Pakistan. No wonder we are a country of under funding.

Good grief! This makes us sound like one of those poxy, effete city states of the middle ages who sent tribute to the big, rough boys over in the next province so they wouldn't get sacked and pillaged _ perhaps we should start calling 'overseas aid' of this kind 'Danegeld'?

Oh its lovely to see how wonderfully giving the people of Britain are.
Us sitting here on our computers with our internet - of course, why bother giving aid?
How ridiculous.

Kathryn,

You miss my point. Aid should go where it's needed, not to countries that have a trade surplus and enough money to build space station and nuclear weapons (think China!)

And why would you give £millions to a country if you knew that the country's dictator would spend it on his pet projects? (Think of most countries in Africa!)
