That is disappointing, unless of course, it is going to be managed in a different way.
It goes against the grain to be giving money that gos to countries who have their own space program.
It goes to countries that DO need the help, but it is unlikely to benefit those who it is aimed at.
Foreign Aid needs a radical overhaul. I don't see it happening anytime soon.

Cashy, I don't quite see how Foreign aid will feather the nest of an MP.
Pakistan is a beneficiary of a large part of the funding, Ethiopia gets a fine slice as doe Bangladesh...and these are only a few I can think of.

I am not against giving some foreign aid, but it should be rigorously monitored to make sure it is being used to benefit those in need. It should be going to feed, clothe and house those in need.
Not being used to create an African version of the Spice Girls.

We have to wait and see what proposals are put forward.
Whatever happens I will not be voting for a Labour candidate. if all fails I can always draw on my ballot paper.

I might vote for a Labour Candidate if:-

1/ He/she is a genuine replacement for the one we have now.
2/He/she talks in terms that show him/her to be a believable representative of this area.
3/ I grow another asshole between now and the election date.

I think number three is the likeliest of those things.

It shouldn't cost the school anything. If the parents needs a translator, they should take one with them at their own cost

No, not in the least mate! It's a school in the UK, the language of the Country is English (or it damn well should be). That being the case, any sort of communication or transfer of information should be in English & if people can't comprehend why are they in the country? If you no speaka da lingo, how are you supposed to integrate & fully function within a British society???

If you require a translator in France, for whatever reason, you organise one and pay for them. I think the same applies in Spain, perhaps Cashy can confirm.

Don't get me wrong on this, like any good Englishman worth his salt I can't abide the sneering, self centred, arrogant froggits, whose arses we've kicked & then confusingly rescued on varying occasions over the years.

No,the reasoning for my desire to see a more nationalistic & French France resurgent is far more selfish than that, I want Le Pen to dominate in France to assist & expedite the "Shoving it up eu!" & removal of the hordes of "Rapefugees & Gimmegrants" skulking along the French coast waiting to illegally enter our fair isle.

Vive La Victoire! Vive Le Pen!
