UK aid cartoon
Spending 0.7% internationally is a good thing
A cartoon about the Parliamentary debate on UK Aid, taking place today.
This (possibly) demonstrates the advantage of drawing digitally. I was able to get this cartoon drawn and uploaded in quite a short space of time over a lunchtime, and by 3pm it had been recommended for reading for Year 9s at a school in Brighton. If I’m drawing a cartoon for a client I need to take rather more care and do more research, etc, but this shows what can be done.
For anyone interested in further reading I found the following sources useful whilst doing the drawing.
- Joe Ware (Christian Aid) – We spend 99.3 percent of our money on ourselves
- DFID – Media reports on UK aid projects: setting the record straight
[13 June, 8pm. Text updated to be more accurate. Now says ‘National income’.]
It’s not 0.7% of public spend, it’s 0.7% of GNP.
