    Whatever your political persuasion does anyone think it is right that we have given Pakistan £4 billion aid to repair pot-holes in their roads ?
    After all, although there is huge poverty there , their the government has invested in nuclear weapons , nuclear power and has a space programme.
    Also , does anyone know if the other major European countries donate such sums ?

    Surely it can't be that much last time i saw a figure quoted it was in the hundreds of millions not billions.

    Should be scrapped regardless of the amount.

    We didn’t. But they got a lot of it with India for road improvements and other infrastructure improvements.
    it was hundreds of millions but as most popular press used that headline I thought I would !! I am into giving anyone humanitarian aid no matter what their corrupt government do, but come on. Seems crackers.

    We don't send that much.

    Foreign aid is just a bribe, we pull it back on trade deals.

    They don’t get that much, but they are the top recipient for aid.

    £4 billion :lol: that’s about 15% of what we spend on our own transport infrastructure man.

    It'll stop with Brexit IIRC.

    They've got their own space program building muslamic ray gun satellites that we're paying for IIRC.

    You could fix a lot of pot holes for £4 billion.

    Awaiting news of the OP's "source".

    According to the commission of aid impact £235 million of our aid went on one road network alone in Pakistan. More went on trains and infrastructure.

    You will have to google ... independant commission of aid impact.... an agency that ensures our aid is spent correctly and pin points when it has been spent in wisely. Mind you , for all I know Tommy Robinson could be the M.D.
