does anyone else feel odd at the sight and sound of May rocking up to Africa? We exploited that continent, plundered its wealth and then left it as far as we were concerned, to become a basket case. Now we go with begging bowl in hand offering blandishments and false promises in order to get a share of their dosh again. It makes me so ashamed.

We are very clear about this. There will be a fundamental shift in aid spending to focus on long-term economic and security challenges rather than short-term poverty reduction. What this means is that UK taxpayers will subsidise the export of British made arms, riot gear and torture equipment to African governments and corporations. We (actually, you) will also underwite the priovision of top quality British advice on financial managmement to high net wealth Africans (ie, help then put their ill gotten gains into our tax havens). That's so much better than helping the undeserving poor don't you think?

Absolutely to the point Teaser May. Exporting Neo Liberal ideology and weaponry at the expense of the poor. It couldn't be more cynical. We have sunk this low in terms of financial trickery and lies.

I agree Sally. We did nothing other than bleed the continent dry and so it's embarrassing that we're trying to scrape a deal from them. For the 100th time this year I'm embarrassed to be British.
