As we Brexit and look forward to a Global Britain our foreign interests are going to change so government departments need to downsize, disband and re-focus.
The first department that needs to be axed is the Department for International Development (DFID), also known as Britain’s Department of the Bottomless Pit.
In 1997, failed prime minister, Tony Blair, had the bright idea of creating its very own Department of the Bottomless Pit. In creating this department, New Labour abandoned the use of aid for the national interest, instead supporting ‘a joint international commitment to share poverty reduction targets’.
When the Heir to Blair, prime minister David Cameron sought to detoxify the Conservative party, he had the half-witted idea of outdoing Blair by linking foreign aid to GDP, which under New Labour was a ‘commitment’, Cameron enforced it into law.
The good news is that because of the fantastical budget this politically exposed the goings-on within the Bottomless Pit. Our current prime minister, Mrs May, supports retaining the Bottomless Pit.
We all know the crazy but true stories of where the money is being spent, from African Spice Girls, to computers for non-existent schools, that were ‘built’ by our money in non-existent places, and the cash spent in countries like Pakistan who harbour our haters and jihadis. Money is shovelled into China – the country that landed on the far side of the moon this week.
When the Bottomless Pit launched it had an annual budget of £2bn which climbed year on year, with a spike in 2005 at the Paris Declaration of ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign of committing the UK taxpayers to a 0.7% of GDP slush fund. Apart from a slight dip in slush fund contributions in 2007 because of the financial crisis, it rose immediately steadily climbing to a whopping £14bn per annum.
To put this into perspective, the Foreign Office, which you would think would have a similar or larger budget, given that it is in the forefront of the recipient countries politics, poverty and disasters, including the deep pockets of the Ruling Despots, who trouser considerable cash from the Bottomless Pit, keeping their wives in diamonds, furs, yachts, safe boltholes when they are eventually overthrown by a coup, has a budget of £2bn and 4,500 UK members of staff.
The Bottomless Pit has 2,700 people. (Six hundred of the Bottomless Pit staff are currently on secondment to the Brexit Department, so that tells us that they should be sacked after Brexit as they are clearly not needed).
Should we commit any taxpayer cash to projects linked to GDP?
No, because a modern, flexible and thriving low tax economy needs to be flexible and having certain sectors/interests linked to GDP is too restrictive.
Should some of the Bottomless Pit cash be redirected immediately to deserving causes?
Yes, absolutely: our homeless veterans; our elderly living in poor housing and care homes; a rise in wages for those that serve our elderly in care homes/at home care; helping the young get onto the housing ladder; improving our transport infrastructure and training more nurses and doctors. For a short time, we should consider training more social workers to deal with societal breakdown from 1997-2019 and to properly care for those in care that have been abused by the system.
I wouldn’t mind a few pounds spent on our education system to give young people the tools they need for life and jobs. That means training for well-paid jobs, not gender studies degrees or DJ turntable ambitions but jobs that contribute to society and our economy. The cash can also be used to root out the liberal left establishment that has infected our education system for decades, training teachers instead to teach and not to preach dangerous subversive leftist propaganda, producing Snowflakes. More cash will be saved by closing down fourth rate universities and their ‘degrees’. If you want to work in a supermarket or have a job that requires you to ask ‘do you want fries with that?’, that is your choice and there is nothing wrong with that job choice, but do not rack up tens of thousands worth of debt, while we pay useless teachers to teach useless courses that only qualify you for these types of jobs.
I would also abolish funding for those infecting young minds with transgender nonsense; the Met police’s Hurty Tweet Department; all departments created by Mayor Khan’t and all subsidies to left wing think tanks, masquerading as ‘independent’, along with the hate preachers of liberal left campaign groups who target the Right and hound people out of jobs, hassle their families and name and shame.
I digress. Back to the Bottomless Pit project.
As we move into our next phase of history – Global Britain – it is time to get rid of this overblown, overrated, anachronistic Blair/Cameron globalist influenced shibboleth and limit our foreign aid to water projects, disaster help and recovery and British influence around the world.
Britain can be great again. Britain can influence democracy, rule of law, our shared Western Judeao and Christian values around the world.
The Bottomless Pit can be consigned to the annals of ‘British history 1997-2019 the madness of the era called social democracy’ ends.
