It is important to be showing that the Government is being responsible and realistic about the National Debt, the burden the people of this Country are being laden with. To make 25 to 40% cuts in our much needed services which will put thousands of people out of employment and cause them hardship and then announce a 40% in overseas aid is just not acceptable.
The Government need to realistic about giving overseas aid when we have such a large National Debt. It is not right to take financial aid from the people of this Country just to increase overseas aid when we cannot afford it. The tax payers are paying for this aid and it is not fair to put further tax burden on this or future generations.
