Where should this money be spent?

  1. Home

  2. Abroad

    Indulge me here. You'll like this one!

    Right, so you've got £5.8 billion to spend.

    You can choose to spend it on:

    (a) the adverse consequences of the recent floods in the UK


    (b) pie-in-the-sky global arming research abroad

    Now, taking it for granted you aren't David Cameron (we all know which way that fish flaps), which do you choose?

    You have a choice. And why should I be impartial? Noone else is! Everyone has an opinion, after all. Sorry about that.

    I love spending money on a broad. This Christmas I got her some nice power tools and a vacuum cleaner.

    Ooh, a sexist comment. Should I call the Spanish Inquisition or just be normal and take it for the frivilous comment it is?

    I may decide once I've found out what 'pie-in-the-sky global ARMING abroad' means.

    Sorry .... It's the Daily Mail. I wouldn't sully my wifi. Do you have a reputable source at all?

    The Daily Mail online is like:


    These two sums of money are the same size. Yes it's one of the other. Black or white. Its so simple. Not.

    There always seems to a convenient figure which is "nearly the same as" whatever the latest campaign is about.

    Odd that

    I'm all in favour of global arming.

    We all need arms......and legs.

    You can do the second with your own people and if there's any left do it with those abroad.

    Should the OP give two different amounts of money when asking what people would spend £5.8 billion on? Would that make sense do you think?
