I wonder what sort of relationship Mogg has with his God?

Aren't we getting " our own money back ?".That which is sent to UNICEF from the UK ?

Go onto Google and tot up how much this country sends out in foreign aid. I'm all for charity beginning at home myself.

Millions being sent to those abroad while our own are suffering. Is this right ? No it damn well isn't.

I see children as the responsibility of mankind regardless of where in the world they reside.

Yes I dont feeling less responsibility for children because they live somewhere else. I have always found that odd.

I’m exactly the same. I don’t distinguish at all. If a child is in distress and I could do something to mitigate the distress I will. They are all just the same, innocents who need help.

I am not suggesting for one moment EV that you are such a person, but it has been suggested that the people who say that charity begins at home and we should look after our own first, are very often the same people who say that if people can't feed their children, they shouldn't have them. A hungry child is the same to me if they are in a bombed out house in Syria or a cold flat in Southwark. They didn't vote for it and those that did should be ashamed of themselves.

I have said up post that the saying charity begins at home is used incorrectly EV and does not mean what you are suggesting.

Me too Galaxy and Whitewave, you can’t choose.
