    Default UKIP to propose 90% cut on foreign aid

    UKIP are proposing a huge cut in Britain's Overseas Aid budget in their manifesto due to be published this weekend. The party will announce that they would reduce the pot from £10.3bn to £1.3bn – a total of £45bn over the next parliament, Breitbart London can exclusively reveal.
    A senior UKIP source claimed this would make a major contribution to reducing the deficit, without walking away from our international duties. He exclusively told Breitbart London: “We have a crazy situation where our government's borrowing and debt are out of control and yet we continue to borrow in order to give away.
    “For decades we have been told overseas aid makes the world a safer place, but ask anyone on the streets of Britain whether they think the world feels safer and you'll struggle to get any positive answers.”
    Although the cut is almost 90 percent of the budget it would still leave enough in the pot for the UK government to spend twice as much as Spain and Italy combined. UKIP insiders are said to believe that Spain and Italy are the right countries to compare the UK to.

    I'd have a 100% cut if I was in charge, until we've got things sorted here. I'd also clamp down on the fat suits or other folk being overpaid in their positions, or being in positions that are not of great enough benefit to the people. Too much money wasted here and abroad, IMO.

    Unfortunately the realities of world economics would make most of that very difficult.
