No aid for bongo bongo land

In the footage, recorded last month at a meeting in Wordsley, West Midland, Mr Bloom said: "How we can possibly be giving a billion pounds a month, when we're in this sort of debt, to bongo bongo land is completely beyond me.
"F18s for Pakistan. We need a new squadron of F18s. Who's got the squadrons? Pakistan, where we send the money."
Did he just say something that I have been quietly thinking?

How many millions is a billion? A month?

A few people have actually said the same thing on here.

It really is about time this silliness stopped.

Next thing we will know is that bongo bongo land has become a nuclear state!

What, the bit about aid or his somewhat offensive reference to developing nations?

Another fine example of UKIP member mask slippage. We'll be hearing a lot more of these now that the Tories have set their forces to work.

what offensive reference is that? Oh i see.. in the leftist view of the world it a perceived racist remark !

what is offensive is sending billions in aid to countries when that money is not only borrowed and the debt resting on UK taxapyers, but would also be better spent at home.

As long as it isn't used to give immigrants free houses and lots of other freebies etc.

Foreign aid involves too many very well-paying empires for senior civil servants and ex-politicians for them to surrender those empires without a major fight.

When David Cameron first came to power and insisted that every government department had to reduce spending by 25%, there was one exception - foreign aid.

Which means we need someone with balls to break these empires down !!!

Giving aid to the Pakis is just stupid.

Any country that has more Mercedes dealerships than public hospitals doesn't need aid.

I've driven Mercedes for twenty years.

It would be interesting to see the ratio of dealers to hospitals in this country.

"Here we go again...."
I was going to ask if this was directed at my right wing racist post.


Why do you say this ? (below)
"I'm sure our American brethren will disagree. "

Whilst the manner of delivery is (perhaps) inappropriate, I agree with the content of Godfrey Bloom's remarks. Too much foreign aid ends up in Swiss bank accounts of third world dictators, or buying them Maybachs and private jets, or otherwise shoring up evil despotic regimes whilst the citizens live, or die, in misery due to lack of basic amenities such as water and education.

It is about time people spoke up and voiced their opinions. If we are called 'racist' for doing so, so be it.
