Interesting article on UK's aid spending in today's Times.

But what changes will the Tories make to aid spending when they come in? They've agreed to keep to the 0.7% promise but I suspect they won't be able to resist the temptation to exert greater political influence over the direction of spending. Perhaps DfID will come under the FCO and more spending in Afghanistan will be marked 'aid'?
