Some tweets from A4e's Roy Newey:
India is the most exciting place on earth for skills development, get involved in our consortiums now.
How do you choose which starving child to help? Answer - you don't. Help us to help all children in poverty in India
Kasia (A4e) is presented to Prince Charles in Poland in recognition of her work to help unemployed. Congratulations, fantastic.
Looking forward to review International Development tomorrow. Do you have any thoughts about where in the world A4e should be?
World Water day. What has that to do with A4e? It is a major driver of poverty in India. Our work must support those affected.
Yes you did. Well done. Now let's tackle the 50% of children in London living in poverty.
A4e breaks new ground in Australia.
Poland enters an exciting phase are you able to partner with a4e Polska to give skills and match into work?
Let's be charitable. Let's assume that Mr Newey is sincere in his belief that by expanding its business through more of the world's poorest areas it can help them out of poverty. I would suggest that he needs to do some reading. He could start with Benny Dembritzer's "The Attack on World Poverty". Unless Mr Newey begins to understand the causes of poverty he will continue to sound ridiculous.
