The lost billions – how your money is wasted on global white elephants


THE Global Quangos Uncovered Factbook released this week by the TaxPayers’ Alliance revealed that global quangos received a cool £85billion from the UK government between 2009 and 2021, and that a further £7.5billion per year is likely to be spent until 2027. Its key findings are:

·         The World Bank receives £1.5billion from UK taxpayers in a typical year. The World Bank bill to the UK from 2012 to 2021 was £15.5billion.

·         The International Monetary Fund has cost UK taxpayers £2.1billion from 2012 to 2021.

·         The UK spent £41,329,462 between 2012 and 2021 on the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, making it the fourth-highest contributor to the OECD’s primary budget.

·         The UK was the third-highest voluntary contributor to the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2022. This is the WHO which would impose a pandemic ‘accord’ health fascism on the world and which we do not need at all for the reasons outlined here. The report gives further examples of the WHO’s overreach and scaremongering. In March 2023, for example, it warned that seven million people could die of excessive salt consumption before 2030 if governments do not pass restrictions.

Meanwhile in the last three years the US government has spent $4.1billion on LGBT initiatives in US schools, as well as in countries from Belarus to Nigeria to China, an Epoch Times investigation reveals.

Out of touch and out of control – that is government in the West today.
