Foreign aid fears
THE speech the Prime Minster gave at the Conservative Conference was just what the Tories needed: no messing about, straight to the point.
Something was missing, because there was not a word about the coalition partners, as if they were not part of the Government. Good on David Cameron for that.
However, he also forgot to mention foreign aid, which needs to be scrapped now, not in the future.
If we keep sending money to countries that do not need it, we will end up being bankrupt. That’s why we are having to keep on borrowing money; we will never get rid of the deficit.
Mr Cameron also never mentioned immigration, which is growing out of proportion.
Labour has a lead of 17 points over the Tories; that needs reducing now.
