Brazil was this week listed as sixth in the world economic league table, with a GDP of $2.5trillion, easing the UK into seventh place with a GDP of slightly less than that amount. So wealthy has the country become that BMW is rushing to build a new car assembly plant there.

Yet the Department For International Development admits to a current £730,000 aid programme to Brazil, in the form of a "large emerging economies programme" to "develop a shared agenda and promote global poverty reduction objectives". Furthermore, Brazil is not on the list of countries, to which it is planned to cease aid.

A bit slow on the uptake,that seems to have been the story of our political classes for the past God knows how many years. Mitchell should change his name to Wattock Hunt. To quote an earlier posting;'God decided to create the perfect imbecilic invertebrate.First he created jellyfish.That was practice.Then he created progressives and perfection was achieved'.
I feel an urgent need to drive a tumbrel!

But just in time we have this brilliant scientific publication that will effectively kill the entire UN IPCC theory of CO2 driven climate change titled the Unified Theory of Climate:
http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/29/u ... ent-846549

Now please spread the word.

This is a real killer publication that will make the climate frauds look stupid, really, really stupid.

On the show 'Stand Up for the Week' Sara Pascoe stated that the UK had given 3 billion£ in foreign aid to China and China followed suit with a 1.5 billion£ package to an African nation. Sara wonders if this is a UK money laundering operation.

Mitchell, is an A1 first class ar*8hole, nobody can tell him anything - he thinks British involuntary aid is doing good in the world.

Dontcha just love these fellas who freely give our money away, he may as well start throwing sackfuls of cash over the embankment and into the Thames, for all the 'good' it does.

Despise politicians? You bet, I put Mitchell up there with Huhne as one of the: really special idiots.
Mitchell's 'little helpers' in the DFID, are as idealistic and as stupid as their master, pretty little things, ex 'charity organisers' on humanitarian crusades to save the poor [but you get to see the world on a first class ticket and top class hotels], with not a clue as to the real workings of a very corrupt and venal world - stupidity on stupidity.

Why we put up with this? Because the EU tells us to, it distributes most of our largesse in their name [under the blue ring-piece starred flag].

It's perfectly clear that overseas aid is not about assisting the Third World. There's ample evidence to show it doesn't work.

It's done by politicians for their own self-centred and self-indulgent reasons which include:

Fishing for wet liberal and immigrant votes. Almost certainly there's no return on investment there, but the investment doesn't cost them anything, it costs the taxpayer, and that doesn't matter.

Posing on the world stage.

Supporting the NGO sector and creating jobs for themselves and fellow travellers.


As it's being done to serve ends other than the advertised ones, it's no surprise that when the actual results are compared what aid is supposed to achieve, they make no sense. Frequently, it's positively damaging.

I don't believe Mitchell is slow on the uptake. He knows exactly what he's doing and its effects and doesn't care.

So can I assume that we are rushing to the aid of Brazil via the EU [s]slush[/s] aid fund as well?

Perhaps someone should tell Andrew Mitchell this. He seems to be a bit slow on the uptake.



He's a Tory wet - you think he'd listen?

The EU is but a natural evolution/mutation of the cancer. Examination of public sector compensation packages & growth on both sides of the pond and here in Scandinavia demonstrate we are only pissing into the wind.

Until a moratorium on the employment of public sector individuals dedicated to the task of taking food from our tables is enacted society will continue to decline.

A young lad called Nicholas Hurd (how did he get started up the greasy pole?) criticised us the other day for giving less to charity than we spend on average on cheese (£1.50 per week, apparently). There's only four Brazillian cheeses and they are all soft or semi-soft and nowhere near the sublime quality of good Stilton or Cheddar. I reckon that DfID money, if it has to be spent at all, should be used instead to market British cheese and associated technology in Brazil.

The point is that giving to charity should be a personal choice, not socialised mass robbery and dispensation of largesse on all sorts of things we likely don't wish to spend any money on and might well give money to see fail. I was taught from an early age not to give money to charities, not only by my parents, but by my grandparents and several unrelated people of those generations, the reasons being that these were obvious rackets doing nothing to solve problems and in fact perpetuating them.

Well, while we persist in electing the likes of that we can hardly be surprised at what follows.

Met many Brazilians lately ?
In certian areas of Britain you will , and certain companies unwittingly employ no other .

How do they stand legally ?
Well its typical of the way illegality is changed into legallity by beaurocrats sleight of hand .
The Brazilians are given a PORTUGESE passport , so they can come in under EU rules .

( One I know , a hard worker earning here to build houses back home , cannot fathom why this country allows anyone from abroad to come here and claim benefits , but then he comes from a normal country, not run like Monty Pythons )
