    Britain sexes up aid figures

    According to this article, from the Guardian, Britain sexes up the amount of "real aid" which is offered to developing countries:

    The organisation's report said only 10 cents of every dollar of US aid was "real" aid. The UK, with 71% "real" aid, was the G7's best performer. But Luxembourg, Norway and Denmark, none of them G7 members, give far more aid relative to their wealth, and a high proportion of it - 81% in Luxembourg's case - was "real".
    Apparently, Britain spends far too much on "expensive consultants" and "administration". See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
