Rishi Sunak is spending a further £500,000 of taxpayers’ cash on focus groups and polling, new Treasury contracts reveal, sparking a claim that he is trying to “repair his image”.

Researchers have been hired to carry out two focus groups and one national online poll each week until February 2023 – taking the total outlay over two years to more than £1.35m

I saw some data that suggested every 'refugee' costs around a million each. When all of the costs are factored in. That report was published several years ago too, so will actually be much more now.

Labour also supports international aid, which is a cheats' charter.

I completely agree Escapee.

However you will have witnessed the 'outcry' from the elitists when it was suggested that IA would be diminished due to the costs of the reaction to covid. Unfortunately many of these types have not only infiltrated the Tory party, they are the majority in the HoL.

We have the utter bizarre situation that the population have been brainwashed into thinking we are a rich country.

Not only do we have far less funds coming in than we spend, we also borrow money we don't have to give it away.

Preet Kaur Gill MP, Labour’s Shadow International Development Secretary, responding to news Conservative rebels are to force a vote to reverse aid cuts, said:

“The Government’s decision to cut the aid budget in the middle of a pandemic risks lives.

“The Foreign Secretary has failed to conduct impact assessments on the cuts, and slashed everything from aid to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis in Yemen to programmes tracking new Covid variants.

“As the only G7 country to cut aid in the middle of a pandemic, the UK’s credibility as a leader on the greatest global challenges has been undermined.

“Ahead of hosting the G7, the Conservative Government should take this opportunity to stop its retreat from the world stage, do the right thing and reinstate our commitment to 0.7%.”

Simple really, IA should be something people who want to give their money away to foreigners can opt in to. And then we'd see how much people like Preet want to give away.

The Hooray Henries’ priorities are clear,

More for Hooray Henries. More for Handcock’s barman. More for wallpapergate. More for the bankers who broke the country and fund the Ory Party.

It really is time for  The Sleaze and his odious crew to go.

For God’s sake go now.
