Funny side of politics is that if you’re playing for England, you never forget your origins. That means, if you’ve got a lot of money and can get people to vote for you, that you know exactly where you’re from.”
But even if that’s true, what if that money’s in fact being used to pay for a whole lot of other things, like some new, more interesting or exciting way of running a country?
The first problem is a matter of public finance. The British government doesn’t release a detailed account of how many of its foreign aid dollars it uses for its political activities.
But a leaked Foreign Office document — an “exam report” from October 2006 showing that the amount of money Britain spends on its foreign affairs ministry — suggests that some of that money is being spent on politics.
In the report, which has been published by the Guardian and its sister publication the Sun on Sunday, the British governm바카라사이트ent is estimated to have used up the bulk of its foreign aid dollars in the year 2005 on political activities to which it belongs: “the promotion of British interests in the Middle East, Europe and Asia”.
But in some cases, as in 2006, Britain doesn’t actually have to spend anything at all on its political activities for the country to be seen as working for British interests or that of Britain’s allies.
The Foreign Office document notes: “To the extent that [British] foreign policy has led to benefits that are now broadly recognised as benefits for British people, UK foreign policy has benefitted the British people.”
The same can be said of foreign aid, but it’s only when you include money spent by other countries on British activities that you start to see the problem.
For example, when Britain’s financial aid to Saudi Arabia for the 2007 London Olympics was announced, some newspapers claimed it was “controversial”. Some were even unhappy because mone우리카지노y spent to support “British interests” was supposed to go towards “British projects”.
However, the money was used to fund projects in the Middle East, Asia and beyond. And all the aid money was actually for British projects.
The document adds that Britain spends billions more a year on its British investments in India더킹카지노.
There are further examples of how Britain is using its funds: in Iraq, UK funds were used to help construct the International Peacekeeping base at Baghdad’s Shadi.
In Somalia, the government spent £2bn supporting the UK’s efforts to help build a “New England
