Government shoul give money to rich countries not poor countries watch


    Ooooh dear...

    I dont like the idea of the government giving any money to anyone outside the UK but its got to be done as part of secretive deals for oil and so on. So i think we should give the aid to developed countries because they will put it to a useful cause such as space travel or cancer research. If you give money to poor countries then they dont spend it on anything constructive that changes society because the only people that see it are the dictators.

    some might argue that space travel is not really useful..

    Since when ALL poor countries are ruled by dictators????...

    You are making very little sense and your argument is ridiculously weak.
    Even the title sounds wrong...

    Give more money to the rich and none to the poor....just :facepalm:
    Well if they are not being told what to do by their own dictators, they are being told what to do by western/developed dictators. Only it's indirectly through trade, hence why they are still poor after all the aid they have been given.

    He's right to say that the primary motivations for giving aid aren't humanitarian, though.
    God, I'm so bored with this unfounded, vitriolic cynicism.
