£650 million reasons not to vote Tory

You have to hand it to Cameron, when it comes to foreign affairs, he's right up there in the Gordon Brown class. When it comes to running Britain down abroad, he's in a class of his own. and I for one am sick and tired of politicians and other righteous scum apologising for stuff in the past that has nothing to do with me.

David Cameron vowed to hand hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money plus vital military secrets to Pakistan yesterday to make amends for offending the Muslim nation last year.
The Prime Minister pledged to invest £650million in Pakistani schools at a time when the education budget at home is being cut.
Britain is also to give highly sensitive military technology to combat roadside bombs to the Pakistani security services, which are widely blamed for funding and arming the Taliban.
The gesture came after Mr Cameron sparked a diplomatic rift last year when he accused the country of ‘looking both ways’ on terrorism.
It is designed to get four million children into the classroom – 17million currently get no schooling. Pakistan spends just 1.5 per cent of its national income on schools but is placing billion-pound orders for six Chinese submarines and 36 fighter aircraft.
The UK will have no control of the curriculum in schools receiving funding, meaning taxpayers could see their money pumped into madrassas peddling extremism.
Mr Cameron defended the payments, saying it was ‘in our interest’ to help Pakistan.
Why is it in our interests to help Pakistan? Don't we have enough problems at home? Also why are we paying into their education system when they are buying military hardware from non UK sources?
What exactly do we get from Pakistan other than trouble? I mean we have the Pakistani gangs in the Northwest pimping and grooming under age girls. There is a good deal of evidence linking them with electoral fraud, police corruption, extremism and benefit fraud to name but a few (usual addendum of not all Pakistanis etc. blah, blah blah).
Cameron couldn't even get the roots right for the Kashmir problem, blaming the UK when it was the governor of Kashmir (an Indian Hindu) who caused the problem.
Still my main issue is this...

This is what angers me, we have problems here that this money could help resolve and Cameron and co are just handing it over to a radical Muslim state without any preconditions as to how they are to spend it other than in education. I suspect a lot of it will go into Wahhabi Madrassas further radicalising another generation of Pakistanis who have already killed non Muslims who called for a reform of the barbaric blasphemy laws in that country. There are suspicions that the military aid will simply end up helping the Taliban to design better bombs anyway.
Cameron's pandering to Islam has to stop, charity begins at home and the money going out in foreign aid would be better spent at home trying to repair the damage done by 13 years of Labour misrule. Yes I know it's only a drop in the ocean compared to the deficit continually being run up by government borrowing, but the lines have to be drawn somewhere and we have need of the money here, spent on British people and British needs. Giving away our cash to nuclear powers who wont spend their own cash on their own people hardly strikes me as a cost effective process. If Pakistan can spend billions on foreign arms to bolster its military, then it can find £650 million to educate its own people from its own pockets and to hell with demanding grovelling apologies from our spineless political classes!

I'm absolutely BLOODY FURIOUS. It's almost as if Gordon Brown is still in power.
What a pc liberal scumbag Cameron is turning out to be.
I can't say any more as I might launch my keyboard across the bloody room.

An alternative view.

Captain Kirk. "What do sensors indicate about the part of the planet called the UK"?

Spock " Its very contradictory Captain. On the one hand they give free medical supplies to people in Afghanistan and Pakistan but deny them to their own people in England!!

Captain Kirk " Thats extraordinary, what else have you got?

Spock "Well they kill people in Libya in order to make them free while at the same time giving up all their own freedom to an alien body called the EU.

Captain Kirk " How bizare"
Spock " Illogical Captain"

Captain Kirk "And what is the name of the plonker in charge down there".

Spock " He's a simpleton they call Dave"

Captain Kirk " Well get his co-ordinates and beam him up straight away. I'm going to save the people of the UK!!!

In comes Scotty. " Nay nay Captain, ye cannae change the laws of Physics!!

maybe its time that we had a political position similar to the Roman`s tribunes of the plebs,outside of the Party system but directly elected by the people and with the power to veto such lunatic proposals.
