Fred Forsyth’s idea of moving oversea’s aid fund into an aid corps would increase aid and reduce corruption.

This letter to the Daily Express (7/11/2014) was published.

I think it fits in with Socialist principles but most, on both political wings, might not:

Printed:
Put elite British force in charge of oversea’s aid.
I like Fred Forsyth’s idea of switching foreign aid money to a British corps but I would not give it the MoD to administer. (“Send armed forces to rescue”,November 7).
The MOD have already made it obvious, in Afghanistan, it is incompetent in terms of both purchase and Supply.
It needs a new Ministry to take the helm, one that is not headed up by academics but instead led by business men, working alongside ex-military personnel
The personnel for the corps itself could come from all those experienced Service personnel presently being sacked and sacrificed on the altar of political ideology.
 When these highly trained people are not needed for relief efforts, the Corps could be of service here, training the next generation of reservists, with the relevant skills, to be drawn on in a case of multiple emergencies.

They’ve already made it obvious that they are incompetent in terms of purchase and supply, in Afghanistan.
 
It needs a new Ministry, headed up by business men (not academic’s) and ex-military personnel, carefully chosen by a select committee of unambitious MP’s.
The personnel could come from amongst all those experienced Service personnel being sacked; sacrificed on the altar of political ideology.
 
When these highly trained people are not needed for relief efforts, the Corps could be of service here, training up the next generation as reservists, with the relevant skills, who can be drawn on in a case of multiple emergencies.
