    Aid Program

    Post by hughh on Mon 16 Dec 2013, 11:07 am

    We were told that the aid to China and India was being stopped because they are now rich super powers. Yet we gave China 27m in aid last year alone. Daily Mail, a Tory backed newspaper, is turning against Cameron's party because of this subject. But what really puzzles me just why haven't the Labour party said any thing on this subject because it would certainly be a vote winner.

    Well spotted Hughh !

    The only thing I can think of is that Ed Miliband is keeping that bit of news close to his chest so that he can release it just before the next election.

    I have to ask:

    Where did you find that: "We were told that the aid to China and India was being stopped because they are now rich super powers".?

    Who was it that actually said that ?

    Cannot remember who said it but the mail triggered off my memory on the subject. We are a very poor country compared to China and India, talk about the poor giving to the rich they must be laughing at us.

    Yes mate, on that subject we TOTALLY agree !

    I actually have heard that statement too before, somewhere, but I also cannot remember who said it.

    If any of the other ROB-users can remember who said that, it would be appreciated if you can tell us, so that we can keep it in our memories for later use.

    UPDATE !

    Found it.

    Here is the quote found in the online Daily Express, from the then International Development Secretary, Andrew Mitchell: ( He was the Minister who resigned after the "Plebgate" affair ).

    "In 2011, China was one of 16 countries which the then-International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell vowed would stop receiving UK aid by 2016."

    HERE is the full article from The Daily Express.
