    Britain was livid to lose the lucrative MMRCA deal leading to such pithy outrage orchestrated within the British public over the rejection of British 'aid' (declared as peanuts by Pranab Mukherjee) with such lameness as to why give aid to India when India had a weapons buying spree and a space programme!

    It obviously makes the British, who are down at their knees and very impotent, given that Britain ruled more than half the world at one time.

    It makes the matter worse when one of its erstwhile colony overhauls them in all aspects.

    And yet, they realise that the Indian market is their soul support and will help them to keep their home fires burning and food on their table.

    Hence, a Minister to hawkeye India!!

    Jolly good!

    Good for them. Wonder if they need Minister for India to approve the credentials of the new High Commissioner who is yet to get time with the Queen.

    So they appoint a Paki motorham as the de fact minister/envoy for Pakhanaland but appoint an Englishman as the so-called "Minister for India".

    Do the Brit numpties still think these are the days of the India House?

    yes, i thought a british person of indian origin would have been more appropriate -i dont think this barker or whatever will get very far not knowing the culture and therefore behaving awkwardly

    When the economy is in doldrums, you are bound to go for contingency measures, the UK is no exception. If Mr Greg Barker can deliver, he be the point of contact.

    India needs to seize this moment. Good time for mid sized Indian companies to make a foray into the UK through T/Os, JVs, and then through the UK push over to the EU.

    Time the GoI worked out policy initiatives along with various industry bodies in the said direction. Indian private companies ought to be our best known export in times to come, make these companies huge.

    The TATA group is owned by a Irish man now? Mystery settled in Ireland and gave up his Indian citizenship, thats pathetic.
