£2 Billion for Davey’s Gravy Train Aid

daveyTwo weeks ago George Osborne caved in to the LibDems on green subsidies, today there is another victory for Ed Davey on so-called ‘climate aid’. £2 billion of taxpayers’ money will be sent abroad to pay for, among other things, wind farms in Uganda. Good thing there will be lots of positive news for hard-pressed families in the Chancellor’s autumn statement to soften the blow. Or not. Another perfectly coordinated Coalition policy announcement…

        Maybe Ugandan windmills is really Ugandan discussions for Limp Dumb idiots, because when you think Uganda you see sunshine and solar panels, not force 9 gales and moronic bird-mincing crucifixes.

        My guess is that these Ugandan windmills will become second-tier status symbols for the tin-pot African nomenklatura, as really only the President gets to have a private jet paid for by British workers taking loans from the banksters, and the pecking order must be maintained. All so that tw@ts like Davey can look generous in their bathroom mirror, while screwing both the British public and the African people through the unalloyed racism that is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. What better than to have the chavs pay for a few Uncle Toms to round things off nicely. Yes, life really should imitate art more, don’t you think?

      Appalling – that we should be borrowing money on the one hand, and sending it away on the other hand – worse is that the recipient doesn’t even want wind turbines – if they need power, they need coal or gas, nothing else will do, as we know from our own bitter experiences!

    You know it is the right thing to do. When these countries have no one left because they are all here then we can save all the foreign aid which will boost the economy by billions.
    Anyway back to the important things, namely gay marriage, and working on my EU speech.

    Brown, Balls, Cameron, Osborne, Clegg, Miliband, Cable, Blair…. the lot of them. They are a bunch of pigging cretins.

    If between them they had made zero policy changes over the last 20 years the country would be in far better shape. CRETINS!!!

    Tory insanity exposed says:

    As Uganda has developed a comprehensive and vicious anti Gay culture that is getting worse by the day they will be able to hang them from the windmill blades four at a time. Obviously the UK government is pretty hot on Gay equality in the UK and rights but not around the world obviously. Maybe all the Gay Ugandans can come to the UK to settle? Everyone else and the their dog are here, the more the merrier, until we get a taste of the Balkan civil war first hand of course. Welcome to the land of the insane, its a truly weird place.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
