Leaders should put Britain first.

BRITAIN is in debt to the tune of pounds 1.5 trillion yet, in spite of this, the ConDems are set to increase our overseas aid budget from the current pounds 8.7bn a year to pounds 12bn a year by 2014.

Britain (that's you and me) give more in foreign aid than any other country in the world at almost double the GDP of any of the G8 countries.

On top of that we have the most generous benefits system in the world (so long as you weren't born here).

Why so many asylum seekers come here is that they all know what a soft touch this country is. Data gained through the Freedom of Information act shows that there are hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers living in houses and flats with a mortgage value of over one million pounds each, rents paid courtesy of the British taxpayer.

This Government, as well as the last one, insist that foreign people don't get priority on council housing lists. That's because they are put in private, rented, luxury housing while the rest of us have to wait years to be housed.

It's high time our politicians got their priorities right and looked after Britain and the British people first. When we get our own house in order then we can go about helping other less fortunate people in the world.

I wonder who will help us when we become a Third World country thanks to our useless politicians constantly screwing around with our lives? A PIPER.
