U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair said Britain will give ``hundreds of millions of pounds'' in tsunami disaster aid,
Once the situation and needs have been assessed, ``we will far and away more than match the generosity of the British people,'' Blair said during a British Broadcasting Corp. radio interview today in London. Britons have donated 76 million pounds ($140 million) so far, and the U.K. government has pledged 50 million pounds.
Read that again slowly - the Government will match the money the public has given - with whose money exactly? Isn't it easy to be generous with other people's money!
