Charity Starts at HOME!
Updated: Dec 14, 2020
The UK economy has contracted by 11% due to the pandemic. The Foreign Aid budget was set at 0.7% of GDP. Now, it's set to be slashed to 0.5% of GDP.
Personally, I would slash it too 0.3% of GDP.
Charity starts at home and at this stage of the pandemic, I think British citizen's suffering should be looked after first!
0.7% of GDP is the UN recommendation and that cost's Britain almost £14 Billion a year and only a mere 5 nations meet that recommendation annually.
36% of UK funding is multilateral. Therefor, the money is spent through organisations such as the United Nations and the larger bulk of 64% is spent on a bilateral basis.
The top 10 beneficiaries of bilateral aid were: (Figures Approx)
Pakistan - £463m
Syria - £352m
Ethiopia - £334m
Nigeria - £320m
Afghanistan - £235m
Tanzania - £186m
Jordan - £175m
South Sudan - £161m
Sierra Leone - £154m
Somalia - £152m
I've put 5 of the top 10 in the spotlight:
The Ethiopian LGBT community can expect a 15 year jail sentence for being open about their sexuality. So, that should be £334m going into the NHS and not to the Ethiopian Government?
Nigeria carries a sentence of 14 years for the LGBT community. So, there's £320m that could be spent on the British Armed Forces?
The Tanzanians are a funny bunch. Being lesbian is ok! But, if your a gay man you can expect 30 years to life imprisonment! Another £186m better spent at home?
Local laws in South Sudan see the LGBT community executed. However, the national law is clear, only 10 years in jail! That's £161m that could be spent on the emergency services?
The Somali LGBT community also face the death penalty! Wow... That's another £152m that could be better spent at home until these barbaric colonial laws are changed!
These laws and values are completely incompatible with Modern British Values. Yet, we're still sending money over.
The Foreign Aid Budget should be slashed in half, and countries that are incompatible with Great British values should be CUT OFF!
