BRITISH AID TO THE DRUG TRADE

In the last 10 years, during which time the UK government,  has doled out pots of money to re-habilitate Afghanistan, it would appear that a large chunk of the money has been used to improve opium poppy production, which has trebled during the same period of time.

The UK’s foreign aid bill – which Mr. Cameron, bloody mindedly, holds at 0.07% of the national GDP, and which is currently around 17 billion pounds a year – has been used to help countries that expand opium production, make atom bombs, support dictatorships and continue to undercut manufacturing costs in the UK to the detriment of all UK citizens !
