UK Government: Stop ALL Foreign Aid for at least 10 years

    1. Peter Maddison
    2. Petition by

      Peter Maddison

      Derby, United Kingdom

The Government have budgeted up to £50 BILLION in Foreign aid by the end of 2014.

Because the UK is now in it's THIRD recession and the Government are performing barbaric cuts to public spending, in the way of drastic reforms to the Benefit system which are affecting hundreds of thousands of people. Instead of cutting funding to the UK, the Government should cut funding to Foreign Countries, which we can not afford as we do not even have the money we are giving them, The Government are putting us further and further into debt. There are even some Countries that DO NOT WANT FOREIGN AID as they are now a developed Country. But to save face, the Department for International Development (DFID) force them to take it due to negative publicity about poverty of those Counrties.
