    Really, why the hell does a puny broke island country need a fleet of seven nuclear attack submarines? If thats not displaying intent of invading/colonizing, then what is? Especially considering their past.

    Guardian though an English newspaper is being unfair.

    Check it out on the British Army informal forum (ARRSE) and you will find that you all are wrong.

    Check it out with the Billingsgate Market types out there.

    Britain, as per them, is a superpower with super duper weaponry.

    And Indians have no latrine and wasting money on space exploration with British aid money!!!! :shock:

    Imagine they believe that the peanuts that Pranab dismissed is what is good for a space programme!

    Daft!

    It is only the US which can save the British the headache of making weaponry that they can't do to save their lives, and they may not admit it, but it is the US weaponry that sustains them.

    They should coopt China so that at least they learn how to copy well!
