Indian Astronaut Thanks Mitchell for Taxpayers' Cash

Cafod, Oxfam, Action Aid and other assorted campaign groups have put together a little jamboree in Westminster where activists are demanding that the international aid budget goes up from 0.7% to 1%. At a time when the UK can’t even afford an aircraft carrier, most people are baffled by the idea of giving our money to nuclear powers like India and Pakistan.  But at least they appreciate it right?

A spaceman from the Indian Space Research Organisation came along to say thank you to the taxman…

UPDATE: Guido and the spaceman were escorted out of the building so we were unable to speak with Cafod’s new comms hire Damian McBride. Nor could we hear Andrew Mitchell boast how much hard-earned taxpayers’ cash he is exporting to corrupt Mercedes-driving aid recipients.

Quote of the Day

Stephen Bush writing in the New Statesman‘s morning briefing…

“The terrifying truth is that the Opposition is too divided – within the parliamentary party, within the trades unions, within the Shadow Cabinet and even within the leader’s office – to be anything other than a veto player as far as Brexit goes, and the party’s whole gambit is really about trying to make that weakness look like a strength. Keir Starmer saying that Labour is “increasingly likely” to vote down the deal is simply a reflection of the fact that the one thing the Labour party will be able to agree on as far as Brexit goes is that Theresa May’s deal is no good.”
