My suggestion would be to send on any such request for aid to someone with loads of experience in dishing out aid - Kevin Rudd.

The only amendment to the Rudd aid model should be that the money he dishes out to make himself look good to the Third World should come from his own pockets. Thanks to the millions his wife has creamed from government contracts both here and in the UK, those pockets are deep enough to shell out a few million.

It is far too easy for our politicians of all persuasions to make good fellows of themselves at somebody else's expense, especially when they have control of the Nations treasury. Charity starts at home. The two previous Prime Ministers this Country had the misfortune to experience spring to mind.
