EAST Lancashire Euro-MP Paul Nuttall has called on the government to axe British aid to Argentina of more than £2million a year.

The UKIP MEP said: “What madness is this? Argentina, which is a member of the G20 group of leading economies, hardly needs charity from Britain. It's bad enough that we give millions to countries which do not need our aid, including India and China, without pouring funds into a country which is openly hostile to us over the Falklands. They don't deserve our support and it should be axed.”
