Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Hundreds of aid workers have given up their Christmas holidays to deal with this crisis – it is unfortunate that our Prime Minister can’t do the same, if only to show some solidarity with those who are giving up the only time of the year they get to spend with their family to travel to scenes of utter horror and try to help those in desperate need. But instead, he’s staying on a luxury, relaxing holiday in Egypt. Lucky him.
And the fact that the British people can outdo their government’s donation within hours shows how pathetic the government’s ‘aid’ has been. If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be laughable.
