We have three old establishment parties that are obsessed with this idea of spending 0.7% of GDP on foreign aid.
That means that over 12 billion pounds of your taxpayer’s money will be spent on foreign aid in the next year.
When Britain is struggling economically and we have people who are struggling in poverty in our country this position simply makes no sense what so ever. Charity must indeed begin at home.
Yes we should spend 3 billion on foreign aid to help people in humanitarian disaster situations but we in UKIP are very clear that we must cut the foreign aid budget.
UKIP is the only party that opposes this madness of increasing the foreign budget by so much.
At the very same time the old establishment parties will not even entertain the idea of spending 2% of GDP on defence. Even though we have a resurgent Russia, the threat of Islamic state and rogue states like North Korea that have nuclear weapons.
We have three old parties with the wrong priorities that are more bothered about looking good on the international stage then defending our country.
We in UKIP are now the only party that will cut the foreign aid budget and make sure that our armed forces get the support they deserve.
UKIP are now the party of the armed forces.
