Down the drain

This is why a lot of us have some trouble with the "give more now" chorus:

Nigerian leaders 'stole' $380bn

More than $380bn has either been stolen or wasted by Nigerian governments since independence in 1960, the chief corruption fighter has said.

Nuhu Ribadu told the BBC that Nigeria has "nothing much" to show for the missing money.

We really don't like the idea of funding kleptocracies.
