Bob Geldof Attacks Australia's "Pathetic" Foreign Aid Support

Sir Bob Geldof was in Australia yesterday to take on his new role as “Honorary Ambassador for the City of Brisbane” (huh?) and immediately turned the tables on the country by slamming the government for not allocating enough GDP for foreign aid. From the article,

“He said, ‘It’s embarrassingly pathetic. In fact, it’s one of the meanest in the planet. (It is) way behind the rest of the developed world. For a country that keeps boasting about its huge growth, which is absolutely correct, you should boast and be proud of it. Is 99.5 per cent not enough for you?'”

Currently, Australia allocates less than 0.5% to support people in less economically developed countries. The rocker urged the government to look beyond that and the 0.7% mandated by the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals for 2015. He added, “If people think that’s a lot of money – what, 99.3 (per cent) is not enough for you all, does that not do it? It’s tragic”.
