Lord Dickie Attenborough has lost a daughter and a grand-daughter !
Britain originally pledged half a million pounds in aid, which was suddenly increased to £1.1 million by Big Tone Bliar when the seriousness of the situation became more apparent.
We are now being told we are 'cheap-skates' in light of Saudi Arabia's immediate pledge of £5 million !
Bearing in mind the amount of money we pour into the European Slush fund every year, I would have thought at least £5 million would be a mere drop in the ocean to us !
Starts to bring things into perspective a bit, don't it ??
