Danish aid in Africa

Denmark has for many years been the country in world giving the highest aid to the so called "third world" (measured in percent of the population).

The right-wing government coming to power in Denmark late 2001, plans to cut down on the aid. At least 1½ billion DKK are needed to finance a promised tax-stop. As always the poorest people will have to pay so the rich can get richer. It is surely a very embarrasing lack of moral. But even after the reductions Denmark will still be among the biggest aid-donors. Other rich western countries are even cheaper with their contributions to make the world a bit more fair and safe for everybody.
