Nigel Farage has condemned ‘media bias’ for encouraging the government to give foreign aid to Nepal.
Britain has pledged £5 million to the earthquake-ravaged region, money that could be ‘better spent’ on a British earthquake, if one were to happen.
UKIP opposes spending on foreign aid, because its members don’t read the ‘World’ section of newspapers.
“By shamelessly reporting about foreign countries, the media is encouraging Britons to care. And that’s not something UKIP thinks we can afford to do”, said Farage.
“I don’t see Nepal giving money to people in Thurrock who may or may not be trapped in an avalanche”, he revealed. “And that can only be for one reason: they have a news blackout.”
