UK Fury over a billion pounds down the Global Warming Gurgler!

With the UK fighting to stay off a financial default list including Greece, Italy and Ireland  it is amazing the Government  is able to pony up a billion pounds for slurry pits in South Africa and insuring farmers there against flood and drought. The struggling voters think it is amazing also that a Government borrowing 4 billion pounds a week can afford this and that maybe charity begins at home! Why is it that when we elect someone they immediately become financial nincompoops and can't comprehend the simple fact that the European disease is caused by  spending what you don't have and haven't earned -the Euro Ponzi scheme - it collapses when the music stops and no one will lend you any more money.

FRESH outrage erupted yesterday over the cost of details of the aid package overseas aid after it emerged that Britain is to stump up £1billion to help African countries fight climate change.
Energy Secretary Chris Huhne will spearhead the megadeal that will see taxpayers shelling out for projects to help farmers insure their crops against flooding and drought.

Other schemes include installing solar power in villages and building slurry pits that can produce gas to power generators.

The move will infuriate millions of hard-pressed taxpayers trying to make ends meet. South Africa, the most economically advanced in the continent, is one of the continent, it is one of the countries to receive the handout.

Last year, its economy grew by 2.8 per cent while Britain's grew by just 1.8 per cent.

Ukip MEP Godfrey Bloom said: It is inconceivable that the Government feels able to spend money on climate change in Africa when its austerity measures at home are causing such pain. If we have the money then we should spend it here.” Mr Huhne is expected to announce details of the aid package ahead of talks at a United Nations summit on climate change in Durban, South Africa, which starts this week.

  2. We need more like Godfrey Bloom - the creeping bureaucracy is a one-way street as Europe is finding out.
