Rishi Sunak Cuts UK 0.7% Foreign Aid Commitment In His Spending Review
Rishi Sunak has confirmed he is axing the UK’s commitment to spend 0.7% of national income on overseas development.The chancellor announced on Wednesday the commitment would be cut to to 0.5% from next year.“During a domestic fiscal emergency, when we need to prioritise our limited resources on jobs and public services, sticking rigidly to spending 0.7% of our national income on overseas aid is difficult to justify to the British people,” he said.Speaking in the Commons as he unveiled his Spending Review, Sunak said: “At a time of unprecedented crisis, government must make tough choices.”It means aid spending will be £10bn in 2021, £4bn less than would have been the case had the 0.7% commitment been kept.The Conservative 2019 general election manifesto promised: “We will proudly maintain our commitment to spend 0.7% of GNI on development, and do more to help countries receiving aid become self-sufficient.”Boris Johnson has already closed down the Department for International Development (Dfid) and merged it with the Foreign Office to create the new Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.Former prime ministers David Cameron, John Major and Tony Blair have all publicly spoke out against the announcement before it was made.Andrew Mitchell, a former Conservative international development secretary, told Johnson last week he should heed the warning by general Mattis, the former US defence secretary, who told Donald Trump: “The more you cut aid, the more I have to spend on ammunition.”Jeremy Hunt, the former foreign secretary who lost out to Johnson in the 2019 Tory leadership contest, warned a cut in aid spending would send the “wrong signal out to the world about our values as a country”.“We spent a decade wining the argument,” he said. “Even a temporary cut will create an enormous clamour of people who will say we should not go back it.”Malala Yousafzai, the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize, also joined calls urging the government not to cut aid.Related...

There is still no end in sight to the infighting tearing Labour apart | Sienna Rodgers
The NEC walkout over the election of a new chair revealed that Keir Starmer has much to do to unite the party behind him• Sienna Rodgers is editor of LabourListThe latest episode in Labour’s internal drama this week saw the first meeting of its newly elected ruling body kick off with a walkout, or perhaps more accurately described as a click out, given that the protest took place during a Covid-appropriate video conference call.Two of the most vocal Labour left activists within the party, former MP Laura Pidcock and Unite’s Howard Beckett, made points of order directly criticising Keir Starmer. Then 13 members of the national executive committee (NEC), including several trade unionists and a handful of representatives elected by members, left the digital gathering. What had sparked their fury was the leadership’s decision to disrupt the existing procedure for deciding the chair of the committee. Continue reading...
