The point as you well know, is that it was Irrelevant to the numbers in 2018, that much is clear. It's a pity you seem to be unable to find it in yourself to agree.

How did you expect it to be interpreted?

Things have moved on since 2018.
 
DfID are lucky I'm not in charge. The foreign aid budget would be cut to 0.0% overnight.

It would be a real shame for them, because they would then have to make do without Ferraris, wiping their arses on £50 notes and unlimited African underage concubines.

Soft power? Soft touch more like. The World are laughing at us whilst rinsing our Free Cash machine.

Our politicians can fúck right off if they think it's fine to keep spreading the cheeks of the tax payer, ready for a long queue of Chinamen, Africans and Indians to have a free pop whilst laughing at how stupid whitey is.

I feel less than comfortable with some of the recent comments.

However, Pareto's Law would suggests that 20% of development activities produce 80% of the results, therefore it should be possible to find savings without having significant effects. Hopefully the things that get cut will be the ones that are called out by the media, reinforcing public support for high impact projects.

"Sterilization (also spelled sterilisation) is any of a number of medical methods of birth control that intentionally leaves a person unable to reproduce. Sterilization methods include both surgical and non-surgical, and exist for both males and females. Sterilization procedures are intended to be permanent; reversal is generally difficult or impossible".

We should follow the Jap model. Use aid as a means of promoting/supporting Japanese business. Jap’s donate Toyota pick-up trucks and rice (grown in Japan).

All UK aid should be manufactured or grown in the UK. Use aid money to invest in UK jobs manufacturing ‘tat’ the third world needs, for example:
-Condoms
-Condoms, and more
-Condoms
-Eco-friendly emergency shelter/accommodation
-Water purification technology
-Medical supplies, and before I forget
