UK OVERSEAS AID MONEY FUNDS 'CLIENT EARTH' WHO TAKES IT TO COURT

This post gives the details. The UK government is using the Overseas Aid Budget to give £1 million  a year to an environmental pressure group called Client Earth. This so-called charity pays its Chief Executive £232,000 a year. (He has just had a 50% pay rise.) Not only that, but Client Earth has recently taken the UK government to court to force it to bring forward new tougher measures to reduce car exhaust pollution.  

It makes you wonder whose side the government is on. Both sides seems to be the answer. That is both its own and Client Earth's, but not the taxpayer's!
