To: The Secretary of State for International Development of the United Kingdom, Rt Hon Penelope Mordaunt MP.
Dear Ms Mordaunt,
Recuperating Taxpayers’ Funds
“Once to every woman and nation, comes the moment to decide, In the strife of truth with falsehood, for the good or evil side”
To paraphrase the old hymn, You, Secretary of State, are at a great moment of truth. You can be the person to seize the day and finally clean up DfID and stop the criminal misuse of “development” monies that have filled the pockets of the crooked “Aid Industry” and done the bidding of the Globalist Agenda 21. Or you can add your name to the list of infamy from Claire Short through to your Conservative / Coalition predecessors of recent years.
Fortunately, your appointment as Secretary of State for International Development has coincided with a great awakening of the public to the undeniable fact that even our hallowed and vaunted charities, Oxfam, Save the Children, the Red Cross and the United Nations’ UNICEF are riven with corruption, self-dealing, sexual abuse, embezzlement and are too often counter to the stated purpose and mission of DfID. Their perfumed veil has certainly lifted.
The job of investigating, cleaning, and rebuilding DfID will be a very difficult job because there are massive vested interests on all sides: the charities, the contractors, the corrupt foreign officials, the well dug-in civil service – all of these groups have been at the trough for decades. The established beneficiaries of DfID largess will fight a fierce rear-guard action to keep you from cleaning up and returning DfID to its noble purpose. These vested interests are well prepared for a war of attrition, which they have effectively used to wear down and time out other Ministers bent on reform.
Again the tide is on your side, because one of the great villains of DfID corruption and misuse of hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayer money, happens to be the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) – now under the gun from both the Australian and US Governments.
As our Secretary of State for International Development you need to bring the full authority of your office to investigate the funds that have been granted by the United Kingdom since 2002 to the Clinton Foundation and its associates.
Extensive investigations in the United States have found that the Clinton Foundation was never authorised to undertake any activity beyond building and operating the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Centre in Little Rock, Arkansas. That all of their activities and those of the Clinton HIV/AIDS Initiative, Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), Clinton Global Initiative et al were illegal.
That Clinton CHAI entered into deals with Indian drug markers Ranbaxy and Cipla to produce substandard HIV/AIDS drugs, these were provided via CHAI and the Global Fund for AIDS, TB & Malaria to sub-Saharan nations with funding partially given by DfID. Although the Clintons argue that CHAI is not part of the Clinton Foundation and independent of them, the reality is that DfID donated to CHAI pre-2010 when it was part of the Clinton Foundation. Also, what about all the stolen IPR from British drugs companies?
We propose that you as Secretary of State form an independent commission to fully investigate the Clinton Foundation and, based on the results, sue the Clinton Foundation to have UK taxpayers’ monies returned to DfID. By doing this you will have finally addressed the root causes of foreign aid and development corruption. This action will draw a bright red line for DfID’s future, while serving notice on all other bad actors that the decades of graft are over. Placers from Labour hiding out in charities will find their refuges less comfortable (if they are not outed for being sex pests in the meantime).
Moreover, at a time when the UK will be leaving the EU, a free trade deal with our American friends must surely be top of the UK’s To Do List once Brexit has finally happened. A nation with the weight of the UK launching formal investigations into the Clinton Foundation would be welcomed stateside by the new administration to the point where recent mistakes might be forgotten and forgiven.
Now is the time.
Events, history and public opinion are with you, Minister.
It is time to decide.
And we – British taxpayers – want our money back!
