Emma Boon writes for Total Politics about why it's time to end British taxpayer support for Argentina.
DfID isn't directly giving taxpayers' money to Argentina, but we do support loans to them. Given their recent agression towards the people of the Falklands, why hasn't this been stopped?
Just over a month ago, after increasingly aggressive statements about the Falklands made by Argentine president Cristina Kirchner, Derek Twigg MP asked the Secretary of State for International Development the following question in Parliament:
“… how many loans under both the simplified and non-simplified procedures have been submitted to the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development board since September 2011 related to projects in Argentina; and on what dates any such loans were made.”
