Yesterday's Sun revealed the extent to which Britain was leading in Europe on humanitarian aid:
"Shame on Europe for abandoning millions of Africans to die of starvation.
Shame on strutting European leaders who build fancy palaces in Brussels while turning their backs on children dying in the dust for want of a handful of grain.
Africa is in the grip of its worst famine since the disaster that led to the Live Aid concerts of 1985.
Aid agencies need £650million immediately to avert catastrophe in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya.
Britain has rightly taken the lead, putting up £90million…
But what of rich France and Italy, who love to lecture Britain on moral responsibility?
So far, barely a penny extra. And what of Germany, the economic titan of Europe? A pitiful £5million."
