There follows a few paragraphs explaining that my government is borrowing over £90m that we do not have in order to give aid to the unfortunate people in the Horn of Africa, and asking that we give more. It ends:
Today, hundreds of thousands of British Muslims will begin the holy month of Ramadan - a time of fasting, devotion, charity, and care. From sunset to sunrise, they will refrain from eating and drinking, and focus on reflection, self-discipline and prayer.But for millions of Muslims in the Horn of Africa, this month of fasting will be more than a matter of religious devotion ...
The British public have already been incredibly supportive but please, as we enter Ramadan, reach into your pockets and give what you can.I'm all for helping the less fortunate and even, in extreme cases, putting ourselves in debt to do so. But this kind of patronising shite is what has convinced me (along with a large number of policy U-turns and broken promises) that Cameron's lot are just multi-culti Labour in a new suit.
Thank you and with all good wishes for Ramadan.
And, to be polite, they can fuck off.
Have a great Ramadan! Jesus.
