Pretty rich coming from the woman who was infamous as a home-sec for her appalling treatment of, well, everyone and generally led one of the worst governments in history. Never mind the apparent historical amnesia if she thinks this, of all things, 'damages our moral leadership' :rofl:
But hey, i guess not giving money to kleptocratic and genocidal dictatorships in Africa must rank above bombing the middle east, arming terrorists (and harbouring them), using London as the worlds financial launderette and so on so forth.

Then again, i'm equally surprised she still exists as a person capable of getting a front page story, even with the BBC :rolleyes:

I somewhat liked May as a person - humble and comparatively reassuring compared to other politicians.

But this is an absurd claim to make, coming from the woman who annihilated British policing and every other public service. Shame she cares more about siphoning wads of cash off to nefarious regimes in the name of 'development' rather than protecting the UK's domestic security and safety.

Teresa May? Wasn't she a rather average porn actress who had a second coming after her namesake became Prime Minister?

She's right to an extent. How on earth can the UK make a case for developed countries to increase their spending on overseas aid when we drop the commitment? Yes, economically we're going through a rough patch - but the 0.7% level adjusts downwards if the economy contracts. All we've done is open up the case for every other country to claim that they're going through a bit of a turbulent time and that they couldn't possibly reach that target now.

When people speak of "moral leadership" vis-a-vis the foreign aid budget, it makes me wonder if it's about helping alleviate poverty or some vainglorious assertion of British influence.

May can suck my balls people want their tax money to be spent on people in their own country not sending it abroad when we borrow tens to hundreds of billions of pounds each year to be paid by their children and grandchildren
