Queue here for UK's £1bn foreign aid cashpoint: Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse... YOUR cash is doled out in envelopes and on ATM cards loaded with money

First topic message reminder :



Up to £300million spent on scheme in Pakistan, despite claims of corruption
Around 235,000 families pocket cash every three months to boost incomes
They get 4,500 rupees (£34.50) as part of Benazir Income Support Programme
Whitehall officials plan to expand scheme to 441,000 households by 2020
Standing in line, Pakistani families wait at a cashpoint used to withdraw money on cards loaded with funds from British taxpayers.

More than £1billion of our foreign aid budget has been given away in cash over the past five years, it can be revealed today.

Despite warnings of fraud, officials have quietly quadrupled expenditure on cash and debit cards that recipients can spend at will.

The budget has soared from £53million in 2005 to an annual average of £219million in the period 2011-15. MPs last night compared the foreign cash handouts to ‘exporting the dole’.

Around 235,000 families are pocketing payments every three months to boost their incomes, funded by UK taxpayers. Despite judging the scheme high risk, Whitehall officials plan to expand it to 441,000 Pakistani households by 2020.

The revelations fuelled calls from MPs for the Government to ditch the commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of national income on foreign aid.

Backbenchers have argued it is a scandal that so much is being spent abroad while elderly care in the UK is in crisis and town halls are threatening double-digit council tax hikes to close a funding gap.

Nigel Evans, a Tory MP who sits on the Commons international development committee, last night demanded an investigation into the £1billion cash handouts

WTF!?

Pakistanis should be paying for their own people by paying their proper taxes...




They do as well, but they need help from outside and rightfully this country is helping.

Your argument is unethical, selfish and claiming your pitiful contribution, somehow gives you the right to deny help to people who need it.

The only ethical reason to be considered is that uk taxpayers aren't fleeced for any more money that is needed to run uk govt and services...

That is being unethical and selfish

With your view, then children would go without medical aid, as they do not pay tax

Pakistanis can pay for their own... all they have to do is start paying their taxes instead of evading their taxes...


Are you in favour of people evading taxes that they are liable for paying...!?

They are humans, just like you

They need help and we are giving help to them

Best you get over that

What has tax evasion got to do with giving money to people who need it?

I think we should stop all tax evasion and avoidance

Flawed reasoning as its guilt by association

So by your premise, we should not help anyone here, because Brits evade paying taxes

You see, its so easy for me, to easily discount your poor views

That is incorrect, its also for foreign aid

Many Pakistani's live in real poverty, so they need help and we are giving them that help and rightfully so.

Nobody ever voted for the handing out of uk taxpayer cash to Pakistanis cash cards.


But I bet the vast majority of uk will be voting against it now we know...
