Re: Generous (or is it Over Generous) UK
The aid we give to India is almost exactly the same as the budget for their space program, a coincidence? 9 out of the 10 others are experiencing civil unrest in some form or another, so you have to question what this funding is for?
I am not against overseas aid but they should be some specific targets involved e.g health education, agriculture etc and if not achieved suspension of further funds should be applied.
I believe that either Somalia or Eritrea are charging aid trucks to come into their country to deliver aid needed,
