The British government is an enemy of indigenous British white people. Even by that government’s standards, this tale of throwing money to Africans is ridiculous.
Ministers have ended millions of pounds in funding for a five-member female band dubbed Ethiopia’s Spice Girls.
Yegna, which aims to enhance the role of women through music and performance, was reportedly promised £5.2m of taxpayers’ money to develop a radio drama.
Following criticism over the amount of money being granted to them, the Department for International Development (DfID) confirmed the partnership has now ended.
As best as I can tell, this Yegna video promotes open borders. It’s called Migration:
A DfID spokeswoman said: “Empowering women and girls around the world remains a priority, but we judge there are more effective ways to invest UK aid and to deliver even better results for the world’s poorest and value for taxpayers’ money.”
Responding to the decision, the Girl Effect project, which launched Yegna and promotes women’s rights in Ethiopia, said that “new ideas are often resisted and sometimes wilfully misrepresented”.
In December, International Development Secretary Priti Patel was challenged about the project when she appeared before the Commons International Development Select Committee.
At the time she said the Yegna grant was simply “one component” of a wider programme promoting the rights and wellbeing of women and girls in the country.
This is at its heart a story of thievery, where the government stole from the taxpayer, took its cut and threw money at black Africans out of some misguided altruism. It’s time the theft stopped. Now to put Priti Patel in jail where she belongs.
