There's no such thing as charity

Not in this government's eyes, anyway. The aid budget is being 'refocussed', meaning spent on places the UK has bombed the shit out of in recent years. Partly, I suppose, to make good the damage, and partly to bribe the locals into gratitude rather than righteous anger.

As to empathy, altruism and plain need - don't be silly.
