I did the BBC1 Sunday politics show today, anchored by Andrew Neil and went “head to head” with Justin Forsyth of Save the Children. (The programme is available on BBC Iplayer for seven days). They did the segment because the Prime Minister is going to India tomorrow, and I wish there had been time to talk about the whole issue of aid to India, or the disingenuous IF anti-hunger campaign that ignores the real reasons for mass malnutrition in India and elsewhere. I think though that I was able to communicate the point that the aid industry always cites vaccination programmes as if that tiny percentage of foreign aid represents or justified the hundreds of millions, billions even, that are spent on much less worthy and even harmful projects.
