Cutting aid to Uganda

I don't know whether cutting off aid payments to countries with horrible governments actually does anything other than punish the innocent poor and needy but it surely makes you feel better. So let's follow the example of Sweden overnight and stop sending our dollars to Uganda where they are about to proclaim legislation making homosexuals social lepers.
Note:
A reader on the Crikey website has chided me for not being stronger than "social lepers". The law does, after all, prescribe life imprisonment for homosexuals. On reflection something strong is appropriate.
