Sir John Major – 2021 Statement on Foreign Aid Cuts

The statement made by Sir John Major, the Prime Minister from 1990 to 1997, on 13 July 2021.

The Government has blatantly broken its word, and should be ashamed of its decision.

It seems that we can afford a “national yacht” that no-one either wants or needs, whilst cutting help to some of the most miserable and destitute people in the world.

This is not a Conservatism that I recognise. It is the stamp of Little England, not Great Britain.
