Recently, I have been travelling extensively in many poorer parts of Asia and agree strongly with the Mail Online about David Cameron‘s record on foreign aid. I have been in Nepal which has strong historical ties with the UK and the Gurkhas have a world-famous reputation  - Nepal desperately needs infrastructure investment to help it out of poverty. Similarly, I have been in Tibet where Chinese investment has helped raise the standard of living and drastically improve education and learning – so why does Cameron continue to meddle on Tibet?

This leads me to an open question:

In an age of austerity is there still a place for foreign aid and if so, how should it be managed effectively?

Any thoughts?

This is an important MUST READ article from the Telegraph.

via Britain reduced to shaking a weedy fist at Vladimir Putin – Telegraph.

This article brilliantly highlights the impact of David Cameron‘s excessive austerity on UK Defense and Foreign Policy. However, the article also highlights the importance of cronies in David Cameron’s Government.

I am currently in Malaysia and as I reflect sadly, this is just one of the major policy omnishambles in Cameron’s Government.

Let me turn this to an open question:

Given the policy omni-shambles of across Cameron’s Government, why are the media not more critical and why are they not offering the public the alternatives?

Any thoughts, especially on the alternatives?
