A quite splendid use of the money extorted from you at gunpoint, don\’t you think?
The Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni, is to buy a new Gulfstream presidential jet for £24m after convincing MPs that his £16m plane bought seven years ago is out of date.
The UK is of course pumping £700 million into Uganda over the next decade to reduce poverty. No, of course, none of that will pay for this plane, none at all: except of course that money is fungible.
And Musuveni is actually one of the better of the African leaders for this sort of thing.
