    Why does everyone fail to mention that India is Britians second largest investor?

    Because they think that the investment comes from the aid they give us. :)

    The response from a charged British crowd and their politicians has been humiliating .

    They could have said all to the old India, the new India which I and you belong doesnt deserve these sort of talks.

    EFT, even if its given free shouldnt be bought.Let BAE suck big time.

    Exactly where was these trolls when we bought the BAe trainer and not to mention BAe bared us from some deal stating frustration or some bull shit.

    Seriously we should teach the pig a lesson, dam monkeys have no control on their mouth. Typical.

    My take after all the takes: a jet from a single vendor is much better than a conglomerate of countries who are not seeing eye to eye now, due to the eurozone crisis and their economies on the verge of a collapse. What happens if the Eurozone is to break, and say Italy pulls up it's socks? Where do we go for spares then? Ofcourse, Dassault is the L1 bidder and I am pretty sure IAF has chosed the machine with the right specifications, but then other factors needs to be considered.

    As far as Britain is concerned, they need to shed their colonial era mentality. India is the second largest investor in Britain after US, and these kinds of hullabaloo does not send the right signals. The author has also highlighted one key point which is the bias Britain has towards non-EU countries when it comes to migration of students for higher education and skilled professionals. In the last 5 years, Britain, even though unnoticed, have been the most vocal country strengthening their protectionist policies. It stared in the last days of the Gordon Brown government, and that policy is being strengthened by the David Cameron led Conservative Party. And excuse me, but India pays the aid back with interest, and a certain amount of that aid goes to NGOs having their roots in UK.

    Britian should also do some reality check as if they are in the same league as the US. US did make some noise, none of which is anything as compared to what the British media and politicians alike are spewing. India's relationship towarsd the US is on an upward spiral because of the mutual gains both countries have. What does India gain from Britain even after the second largest investor in Britain? I see nothing.

    So, Britain, next time please direct your baseless rants towards your Harlot state Pakistan, for you would be getting it back in the same coin if it is directed at us.
