Global governance

or just colonial hangover? 

Real Democracy is Global; Global Justice for All: pretty deep, that. 
But: Give your vote; Use a UK vote – huh!??

Agreed that with GBP 99.5 million (2009) in aid and GBP 270 mn (2007) in trade, this bilateral cooperation is critical for Ghana. Meanwhile, I found this article from 5th May 2010 that ponders the implications of the UK 2010 elections on Ghana. (Excerpts below)

Through its Department for International Development (DFID) agency, Britain has supported Ghana’s budget. The good thing about this assistance is that there are no conditions, unlike the case with Ghana’s other development partners.

In February 2005, British government paid US79.9 million dollars of Ghana’s multilateral debt between 2005 and 2015.

Britain, undoubtedly, has been the champion for open markets inside and outside the European Union. It has promoted trade and investment in Ghana. For instance, in the year 2007, the UK as Ghana’s leading donor invested £250m in the country.

In fact, if any of the candidates should win and have a different view on Ghana other than what previous UK prime ministers have had with this country; it stands to reason that it will cause Ghana dearly

Who do you think they were rooting for?
