Stop the Government merging DFID with FCO

Stop the Government merging DFID with FCO

Stop the Prime Minister's plans to merge the Department for International Development with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office

Why is this important?

It is important to separate aid to developing countries from diplomatic presence within them. Without separation, aid becomes a carrot to persuade developing countries to accept economic proposals which benefit the donor country. Aid is altruism, it is not commercial pressure. Merging the DFID and the FCO would be a return to colonialism.
