Big Deal

The Iraqis must be ecstatic. Gordon Brown has promised them £100 million to help rebuild their country (here). What a ridiculously small and wasteful offer. The US has spent more than $30 billion on reconstruction, so what's a feeble £100 million between friends other than more taxpayer money wasted.

UPDATE: This is actually over three years!

Yes, but don't forget we've got all of those arms and the Trident missile defence system to save for!
