I wonder just how many other people this morning are throwing objects at the television after listening to Andrew Mitchell, the International Development Secretary, blethering on about international aid. Once again Andrew Marr, after nailing him to the mast, allowed him to wriggle out of the main question...why are we still throwing money at India which they do not need or want?
They briefly touched on the question of Somalia where a journalist had reported that once again Somalia was being 'assisted' because of a discovery of oil. This slippery character failed to address the question and was allowed to waffle on. Whenever I see him I am reminded of photos of him cosying up to some of the worst despots that Africa has to offer.
He presides over the abject waste of taxpayer's money and is one of our PM's 'friends' who never has to deal with austerity like everyone else. Like most of the 'modernisers' he is very good at wasting our money and will continue to do so at every conceivable opportunity.
This country will never get back on an even keel until we get rid of Andrew Mitchell and every politician who thinks like him.
