Is this a joke ?

Apart from the weapons which have already been sent to Ukraine and some were freebies apparently,  the UK Government is sending £88 million in aid. " The funding is meant to help develop Ukrainian energy independence. "
Now isn't that thoughtful ?  :angry:
Last week it was £97 million to Afghanistan, heaven knows if that money will get to the people who need it.  Meanwhile back at the ranch, how are we Brits to pay for our energy price hikes ?

Gotta spend that aid budget somewhere I suppose. Heaven forbid we should say put it on hold till we are over our own problems.

It's good to moan.

Millions in aid to Afghanistan !!! What a laugh.. Doubt it will reach those who need it..

Our Live Aid concert many years back raised millions to help other countries.. Did all donations make it to those in need.. No they did not..
Meanwhile .. back in the Uk...
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

perhaps I am being unduly cynical, but I have a feeling that any aid that goes to Afghanistan will merely reinforce the Taliban's repulsive regime
