Britain expanding economy

9

Britain missed David Cameron’s flagship foreign aid target last year despite handing out an extra £2.7billion, it emerged yesterday.

The figures, buried in an official report, suggest the country could have to fork out up to £750million extra by the end of next month in order to hit the target this year – although Government sources insisted the final increase would be lower.

The revelations are an embarrassment for the Prime Minister who has repeatedly boasted about meeting his pledge to spend 0.7 per cent of Britain’s annual income on foreign aid.

Ministers are now backing legislation which would make it illegal for future governments to miss the aid target. Critics said the figures demonstrated the ‘idiocy’ of trying to hit an ‘arbitrary’ target.

Tory MP Philip Davies said: ‘This just goes to show the absolute nonsense of committing this ludicrous target into law. We have thrown billions at it and still missed it, and now we will presumably throw hundreds of millions more at it.’

  1. I have come to understand that rates for online degree experts tend to be a terrific value. For instance a full Bachelors Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits at $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a full course feature of 180 units and a price of $30,560. Online learning has made obtaining your college degree far less difficult because you may earn the degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish working. Thanks for all other tips I have really learned through your website.
