What an insult

I FIND the PM’s decision to effectively demolish the Department For International Development and to subsume it into the Foreign and Commonwealth Office deeply disappointing.

Describing it as a ‘cash machine in the sky’ is an insult to the hard-working civil servants who have in some cases devoted their lives to the cause of untied aid.

Suggesting that funds will be pulled from Zambia and Tanzania, countries that we have a long and proud history with, in favour of the Ukraine is a purely political act of distraction.
