Chancellor George Osborne came under fire yesterday after pledging £3 million of taxpayers’ money to bankroll football coaching in China.
Dia Chakravarty, of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:
"This will amaze taxpayers who are told that the Government is doing everything it can to control spiralling debt. Politicians like to tell us that we no longer give aid to countries like China but then they bankroll ludicrous schemes like this. Hard-pressed families will not be happy."
