Cameron Promises to Cut Aid to Countries That Ban Homosexuality

At a summit of Commonwealth leaders David Cameron threatened to withhold aid from countries that fail to acknowledge gay rights.

41 of the 54 Commonwealth nations have legislation banning homosexuality. However, most of this is yet another stain left upon the countries when they were part of the British empire.

Malawi has already had £19 million of aid suspended due to there failure to make progress on a number of issues such as poverty and human rights. This shows that the government is willing to make true the threat of withholding aid if it feels the circumstances need action to be taken.

However this threat of removing aid would only apply to one part of aid which is known as general budget support, but it would not reduce the overall amount of aid given to any country. So how effective will threat of removing aid be if it is simply a question of what category of aid is given?

Clearly the problem of anti homosexual legislation is one that needs to be addressed. However, is withholding aid the correct solution? Who is going to suffer as a result of this removal of aid? Or would there even be any consequence’s caused by removal of this aid?
