Aid role for Michael Howard (who planned to cut aid by £800 million)

 News reaches Scrapbook that the president of the newly formed Conservative Friends of International Development will be their election-losing machine Michael Howard (that’s Baron Howard of Lympne to you).

Could this be the same Michael Howard that planned to cut the UK’s aid budget by £800 million?


  1. Richard says:

    Why is PS carrying spam ads?

  2. “Election losing machine Michael Howard”?

    Would that be the same Michael Howard that got better results at election time than William Hague and was more popular as a leader than IDS?

    As for the point about cutting the aid budget, I agree that there’s some hypocrisy and irony there.

  3. I like the idea that you can only legitimately be someone’s friend by bribing them.

  4. Or by honouring your promises.
