Wonder what YOU make of this;

Britain is to stop giving aid to 16 countries after a major review found they were no longer in poverty. Countries such as Russia, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Moldova and Serbia will be stripped of millions of pounds a year, following the inquiry ordered by International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell. Aid to India – which can afford its own space programme – will also be frozen. But vast amounts of extra money – 30 per cent of the entire aid budget – will be pumped into unstable terrorist hotspots such as Yemen and Somalia, in a bid to help them to crack down on citizens exporting violence.

Here’s a suggestion – stop ALL of this aid right now. India and China sure don’t need it but trying to bribe the Yemenese and Somalians is also pure folly.
