If you are Global Warming, you better have a thick skin, cancer has a better rep. But not to worry, your days are numbered. See, a UK politician has figured it out, to beat you silly they just need to expand foreign aid, money spent over there will fix our climate problems over here, and you thought Joe Biden was a boner;
Eric Pickles: Spend aid abroad to stop flooding in the UK
Sustainable aid spent across the world will help to alleviate the effects of extreme weather in the UK, the communities secretary suggests
Britain’s international aid budget will help reduce flooding in the UK by addressing the causes of climate change abroad, Eric Pickles has said.
And I thought I just had to buy a hybrid, shower in rain water collected from my own barrel, and quit eating beans. So all that money sent to Pakistan (who gives succor to terrorists), the PLO (who use it to buy more rockets to loob over at Israel), and to Syria (to, you know, keep the female population in check) will somehow come flying back to us and rid the US of those nasty hurricanes, tornadoes and floods.
Nigel Farage, the Ukip leader, has accused the Government of a “lethargic and inadequate” response to the floods and said foreign aid spending should be suspending while the floods crisis was tackled.
Farage said it was ”basic common sense” to suspend international aid while the country was dealing with the aftermath of recent extreme weather.
”Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that a government’s primary duty is to the well-being of its own citizens. Charity begins at home and it is not mean-spirited to say that, it is just basic common sense.”
Not to a politician, or should I say this politician. Common sense is like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, something they just dream about.
