  Better things to spend it on in this country now IDM, people have had a good run out of the tax payer in this country, but now it is time to spend  it on our own population.
  The situation has changed.

You think only the UK is taking an economic hit during this pandemic.?

When Johnson said at his presser today he was disgusted at people profiteering from the covid-19 crises do you think he meant this bloke:

(Tory MP Owen Patterson is paid £100k per year by the company that makes the testing kits sold at a mark up to private patients rather than at cost to the NHS, if you can't be bothered to read the link)

  .....if we continue to shovel money out in foreign aid.

If companies based here and trading here paid their taxes properly in those countries, we woudn't need to be paying that aid - although as we as a country have profited from looting over a long time, I'm not sure how you justify suggesting aid shouldn't be paid.

Plenty of articles to read about this if you're pleading ignorance  :thumbsup:

New York 5000 cases in one day 😳😳😳😳😳

No Filo. 5000 new confirmed cases. More likely 50000 new cases.

Whichever way, New York needs isolating pronto

  IDM, when it comes to tax paid by Uk residents in the present climate, I am not bothered about spending our tax money on foreign aid.
   There are UK citizens who will be in desperate need of being helped
to get back on their feet that concern me far more.

No one is saying uk citizens shouldnít be helped, just that this doesnít mean foreign aid should stop.. thatís all.

Very odd that they haven't released the England figures yet.

The figures used to be released about 14:30. Then it slipped to 16:00. Never been remotely this late though.

I'm getting quite worried that there's some particularly bad news coming.

No other country has held back numbers as far as I know. And there's been some horrific numbers.

It is Dianne Abbott's turn....

In all seriousness it is a bit odd, maybe just difficulty collating the data.

I wonder why everyone takes the piss out of Dianne Abbott having once had an interview where she made a mistake with numbers?

Why is that so hilarious?

Why does no-one take the piss out of, say, Rory Stewart, who had exactly the same thing happen?

I wonder what it can be...

I'm not suggesting anything. I just don't understand why the gleeful pile on on an overweight black female socialist, and no-one having any recollection of a white upper middle class male Tory doing the same thing.

Strange, isn't it?

You do know that Foreign Aid isn't about charity but economic strategy?

People remember Dianne Abbott - but they forget the interview the current Prime Minister gave where he admitted to conspiring to beat up a jounalist, made up stories he published as a 'jounalist' and failed to deny he was a liar.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2013/mar/24/boris-johnson-interview-eddie-mair

And then don't ask questions as to why the UK has not published its mortality rate for a global pandemic for 29 hours (and counting) and if government led by said liar is telling the truth about the policy it has been following.

But yeh Dianne Abbott

Funny old world.

So it's racism and colour prejudice raising its ugly head again, is it?

Don't you think it might be because a lot of people see her as a patronising, racist bigot?

How on Earth she got away with saying that West Indian women make better mothers than white women I'll never know.

She certainly clammed up when Andrew Neill took her to task on it.
