The UK has given £71million of taxpayers’ money to China in one year alone, it has emerged.
The money was sent out in 2018 in the form of direct aid as well as funding which is distributed by world organisations.
ITV Good Morning Britain politicial commentator Andrew Pierce expressed how “infuriating” the revelation was.
He said: “It is profoundly shocking and outrageous that we’re giving China one penny.
“It’s one of the wealthiest countries in the world, it’s got one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
“It’s a totalitarian state, it’s anti-democratic, it’s been repressing people in Hong Kong.
“That money should be spent in Britain. Keep the money here, don’t give it to these dictatorships.”
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has now ordered for the aid payments to China to be slashed.
