Ever the racist
No better example of Johnson’s racism can be found than in his decision to wind-up DfID. In the Guardian this morning he is quoted as saying “We give as much aid to Zambia as we do to Ukraine, though the latter is vital for European security. We give 10 times as much aid to Tanzania as we do the six countries of the western Balkans, who are acutely vulnerable to Russian meddling.” So the object now of aid is to support countries against Russia and countries with black populations—vulnerable to the effects of (non-Russian) post-colonialism— can go hang. No doubt Johnson will want to fly (in his newly repainted RAF jet at a cost reckoned to be in ‘six figures’) to Ukraine to personally hand over the cheque. If they’ll let him, what with his world-beating Coronavirus record.
