Gordon’s IFFy Plan

Borrowing from the future (and a few tricks from Enron) Gordon’s IFF plan is meant to save the world. But given the literally trillions in aid Africa has had since the sixties, the evidence is that macro-economic aid does not work.

Emergency humanitarian aid is a moral imperative, when disaster strikes, the strong should help the weak and the rich should aid the poor. But transferring aid from ordinary taxpayers in the West, to the African elite, so that they can buy four-wheel drive SUVs and Mercedes Benz is abhorrent.

Gordon’s global plans are more billions down the drain, it would be better if he bashed France into scrapping the CAP and letting Africa export to Europe rather than begging them to help finance his grandiose plans on the never-never.

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
