    Clearly you’ve forgotten how you won the freedom you have today.
    Meaning? I'm not sure which part of history or indeed "freedom" you're referring to...:confused:

    This bill isn't amending the minimum for foreign aid spending it's amending the minimum for defence spending and changing GNI to GDP. Not quite sure why you brought it up, don't know if you're trying to prove a point, like there's any point to prove... It is relevant, but what isn't is you talking about foreign aid spending - so how about you don't bring that up then - because that's not relevant to what is being amended.
    I brought it up because there are those who want to threaten our aid obligations and the LotO's steadiest opposition to those attempts would be very useful in stopping them, duh.

    Reading what I said in the context it is in without manipulating what I said people would be able to realise I was saying the Leader of the Opposition should support maintaining the 0.7% aid target. Because that's literally what I said.

    NAY. We should be investing more intimate our police and our NHS rather than a force that kills people. Not that I’m against the army, just I feel that killing where diplomacy could be used is foolish, which unfortunately happens quite a lot.

    This isn't going to increase defence spending so I'm not quite sure what your qualm is here.
