As the United Nations summit to tackle climate change reaches its conclusion in Paris, African campaigners are demanding compensation for the damage being inflicted on the richest continent by global warming, a problem it is said that has been caused by the richest countries. ‘Compensation’? What a bloody good idea! At the same time, why doesn’t the West demand compensation from West African nations for the cost of combatting the Ebola disease? Not including the islands, there are 47 countries on the African continent. Between them, they have received trillions of dollars in aid over the last 50 years or so, much of which was, and continues to be ‘misappropriated’. Enough is enough!
