Overseas aid is not the answer

Overseas aid is not the answer

Overseas aid is not the answer

First published in Letters

THE Tory-LibDem coalition Government recently made big news about providing £19m to local authorities to deal with the massive number of pot holes in our crumbling roads…£19m?

As many of you who travel on business or pleasure will be acutely aware, our ‘A’ road system is collapsing with tremendous pressure on our infrastructure.

The M6 is falling apart and so substandard now that it borders on dangerous in places. But this Government continues to borrow £130bn per annum, as part of our now growing again fiscal deficit, to give away in overseas aid..? Does that sound logical to you?
