Sending billions abroad, and borrowing to do it, is absolutely wrong
Express, Friday 5th December 2014
The Conservatives, aided by Labour and the Liberal Democrats, today pushed through their decision to dedicate 0.7 percent of British GDP to foreign aid. This means that because of an uptick in GDP this year, we’re actually going to be giving away £12 billion – and in 2015, this will have to rise to £13 billion. The idea of sending billions abroad, and borrowing to do it, is absolutely wrong.
