Africa could become a security threat unless we give it LOTS of money says minister

Rory Stewart, the minister for Africa, said there was a “possibility” that terror groups on the continent could link up with wider groups such as al Qaida, whose Islamist ideology and Jihad aims can be “supercharged” worldwide.

    That’s the exact opposite of what we should be doing. Africa should get no more money.
    Stop feeding Africa with foreign aid and medicine that has increase the continent’s population to ten times what it has historically supported.
    Finally, stop allowing their immigration outside of Africa.

    Pretty much a bottomless pit for foreign aid isn’t it. One trillion dollars in the last 60 years according to the Wall Street Journal yet real per-capita income today is lower than it was in the 1970s. The quote attributed to Albert Einstein about “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” seems particularly appropriate in this case.

    Britain has a Minister For Third World Shitholes?

    • Justin St.Denis

      Of course, they don’t call the job Minister for Third World Shitholes because that means that each country would only have one. By being specific, they leave the door open to the creation of new cabinet positions like Minister for the Middle East, Minister for Palestine, Minister for Indigenous Peoples….. You get my drift, I am sure. 😉

      Britain still gives foreign aid to India, a country with a space program while Britain does not. One more example that bureaucratic departments, once created, can be very difficult to shut down.

        I think Canada still gives foreign aid to China and maybe India too.

      I was going to say Britain has gone to the dogs, but even the dogs wouldn’t want it.

      If I am not mistaken I believe we have a Minister of Climate Change or something along that line.

    This is exactly the aim of Agenda 21 and the Global Warming scam, but here is someone who gets directly to the point of wealth redistribution.

  • But we have given lots of aid to Africa and it STILL is a hotbed of terrorism, so …
