UK taxpayer hands £172,000 to each Pitcairn islander
"Pitcairn Island is one of the territories aided by Britain.
PEOPLE living on the smallest and most remote inhabited island in the world have been handed more than £8 million of British taxpayer’s money in the past three years, an investigation reveals.
The government has dished out the equivalent of £172,000 for every one of the 48 residents on tiny Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific – even though a huge proportion of them are convicted paedophiles [sic].
The aid money funds a staggering 95 per cent of the remote speck’s entire budget, helping the locals – who pay no tax – receive everything from healthcare to welfare benefits."
