Complaining about Bob

As a follow up to the recent poll here about Bob Geldof's comments regarding NZ's level of foreign aid, here's a pretty picture:

New Zealand's Official Development Assistance as a percentage of GNI

The average for OECD countries is 0.47%, we're contributing barely over half that amount. New Zealand has promised 0.35% by 2010 and 0.7% by 2015, targets which the Government of the day will probably sweep under the carpet by the time these dates roll round.
