Re: Who's Spending Britain's Billions???

Something Must be done about this (imo) Criminal waste of Tax-Payers monies!

Whilst most of us were busy getting our heads around the Brexit court case in the last couple of months last year, I've just read this article from Nov 2016 about more of our money being syphoned into private coffers using Off-shore banks, the government were supposed to be clamping down on!....

A draft bill from the Department for International Development (DfID) proposes to increase the limit on official support given to the CDC, formerly the Commonwealth Development Corporation, from 1.5bn to 6bn – with further scope for the cap to be doubled.
UK government led public to believe aid to India had ended, watchdog says.
At a time when the government has pledged to curb the use of tax havens and account for how aid is spent, the development prompted an outcry from opposition MPs and tax justice campaigners, who highlighted the CDC’s record of channelling investments through secretive offshore locations.

Critics also took aim at the CDC’s record of pouring funding into gated communities, shopping centres and luxury property in poor countries, claiming the bill signalled a highly “ideological” shift in direction for DfID
