Greening should 'battle PM for foreign aid cut'.



I wish the very best of luck to the new International Development Secretary Justine Greening who we are told is to "battle PM for foreign aid cut."

In austere times what politicians should be doing is putting number one first.

Rather than giving £280 million to India who can afford to spend money on an unmanned rocket mission to Mars what is wrong with using the money to spend on apprenticeship skills for our own youner generation?

What is also wrong with tackling our own problems with poverty by helping make work pay?

Taxpayers are growing very uncomfortable about the amount we are spending on overseas aid whilst at the same they themselves are feeling the pinch at home and the sooner our government takes notice of this the better.
