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.

“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.”
