May said her new government would keep the controversial aid spending target
Many Tory MPs hate the promise to 0.7% of national income on foreign aid
More than 13billion was spent on development projects last year despite cuts
Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates yesterday urged Mrs May to stand behind the target, insisting it saves lives.

Just a continuation of David Cameron, has she got one policy of her own?
Fuck the British poor, they can have austerity, to help pay for African dictators Mercedes-Benz

British Imperial and American Customary are not identical. The English will fight you to the death to preserve their larger gallons and no civilised person ever gave their weight in pounds, the proper unit is stone. Also your hundredweights and tons are short!!

Imperial it is then. All the better for our gas guzzling huge vehicles. More miles per gallon will impress buyers and help Ford meet it's environmental standards.

Of course they didn't since everyone knows that pound is a currency measure.

Fluid ounces are smaller though, are you willing to make that sacrifice?

And certainly not forgeting Latvians, Estonians, Lithuanians, Czechs, Cypriots, Maltese et al, all have this warm and fuzzy feeling being European, particularly whilst enjoying UK welfare benefits.

Prior to my tenure in Thailand, I lived in Spain for 10 years. Believe me, the Spanish think of themselves as Spanish, not European.
