New Labour - Money for G20 blogging.

Hat tip of the trilby to Dailyreferendum who spotted this waste of our cash from Hansard:
Mr. Hands: To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much funding his Department provided to the G20 Voice programme; and for what purposes such funding was used.

Mr. Thomas: The total amount of funding provided by the Department for International Development for the G20 Voice programme was £49,700. This covered travel and subsistence costs for bloggers from the developing world; technical support and costs associated with the briefing day. Initial indications show that the programme reached a global audience of 14 million.
New Labour finding ever more ways to spend other peoples money...

And what is more, as I point out here, the money was for bloggers from developing countries.

What the fuck? Surely, a blogger from the developing world is a just a little bit of an antonym? What next? Ethiopian Astronauts? Mobile 'phone salesmen from Sierra Leone? Eritrean tooth whiteners? Sushi chefs from Burundi?
