    Angry Brown's giving it away again!

    Well, I see that imbecile Brown has committed our non-existent Navy to patrolling around Gaza. If that wasn't bad enough, he's now announces £20 million pounds in 'aid'.

    Where does this money come from, the country's completely bankrupt. How many operations get cancelled because there's no money to pay for them. Our 'overseas aid' budget is £10 BILLION pounds a year. We give £1 Billion pounds a year to India, a country that last week paid £2 billion pounds for maritime patrol aircraft, £2.2 billion for a Russian aircraft carrier,16 MiG-29Ks for 740 million, 962-million contract signed with US for six C-130J `Hercules' aircraft. How much kit would £1 billion buy our armed forces.

    I've got no problem sending aid to people starving in times of emergency, but £10 billion pounds a year is obscene.

    I'm sure it makes Brown feel all warm inside though

    Got it in one MLC, it's bizarre, immoral (India doesn't need aid - it just needs its rich people to be fairer to its poor people) and just plain wrong.

    Have you been to India and seen the extreme poverty that exists (t)here?

    I am in india right now, and I could post pictures that would make some people cry. . . . . .

    Yes, there are some very rich people here too, but so there are in UK.

    We are indeed very fortunate in UK, and our standard of living could be seen as very indulgent compared to a lot of people around the world.

    That's just the way it is.

    Yes I have - many times. I also work with a lot of Indians and have done so for the last 25 years. Agree with what you say.

    I could say a lot, but have seen first hand the attitude of the rich and the not so rich toward the poor, which gets up my nose.

    P.S. Poverty here in the Philippines is also a horror to see. Fancy living on the local garbage tip? Or the railway line?

    Half the time I feel thankful for being born in UK and half the time guilty about it all. Back home on thursday after 3 weeks on the road - need a break.

    India needs it's rich people to be kinder to its poor people?? How does that work? Can we try it here please? Hands up who earns more than £70k a year - I want you to be kind to me please and pay my bills this month. Any takers? No, didn't think so. So why would it work over there if it doesn't work over here?

    Why should we pay for India's poor so they can spend over £5 billion on armaments.
