What Is Point?

Indeed. To use the phraseology of the Bangladeshi waiter at the Indian restaurant I frequented in Manchester, "What is point of £135.7m annual British Aid to Bangladesh?" Helping very poor people in an overpopulated, geographically cursed muddy-streak of an artificial, unsustainable country you might say. Well I read this today on Defence Industry Daily. How wonderful that a country with a per capita income of US $1870 spends $1billion per year on defence and is intending to buy fighter jets and maritime patrol aircraft. FFS, DFID blethers on about "climate change" being a great threat to the wretched country. What is point?
