The Budget: Vicious but Fair

Osbourne should be applauded for his emergency budget. If nothing had been done we would have gone down the Greek road to ruin.

But Why Oh Why is foreign aid ring fenced? Eight billion a year goes out the door on foreign aid. Much of this goes into the pockets of ruling elites that don't give a damn about their poor.

If pensioners and others in this country are expected to go without, I am sure the foreign aid budget could at least be trimmed.

Most other countries in Europe put their own people first. Why don't we?

I really can't understand why a country with no money wants to give money to another country with no money. I just don't get it.

So Dioclese: How was Greece? Has the liver recovered yet from all that cheap wine? As for death threats, no. But I do tend to get viagra adverts. Unfortunately though there are no free samples.

Greece was very nice thanks - see posts 25th May and onwards - why do I put them there if not even you are reading them? Someone needs to?!? Pretty please....

I'm off there again in September just to double check my facts you understand!

My shariah law post today seems very popular and might well result in a fatwah or two...
