    Moody's threatens to Downgrade UK

    With 510% of GDP as debt, how long can Britain postpone Bankruptcy? GOI should put together a sovereign fund that has a 70% porivatre stake from our big industry like Reliance, Tata, Bharti, IT cos etc to start secret negotiations with the UK to buy up assets before China undercuts them.

    Time for empire to beg aid from colonies? :laugh:

    I'd love that talk-show where white skin ego melts to recognize reality!

    Not too long now chief. The paradox of the situation is that Britain's choice of saviour is gonna be either India or China. They literally have to decide whether their industries should have Indian masters or CCP henchmen. I mean can there be a greater example of Karma biting you in the butt?

    I would never gloat at anyone's misfortunes.

    One never knows the future.

    It is better to remain decent so that it does not bite back in bad times!

    There are many Indians and people of Indian origin too who will suffer.

    And what if they come back to India?

    Who will give them employment and won't they be a burden on India?

    Can we refuse them entry?

    Think that over, before gloating at someone's woes.

    Think things beyond emotions!

    Just a thought!

    I second that. It is a sign of weakness if the misfortune of others, until they are in direct conflict with us, gives us satisfaction.

    All fair points. However I cannot help but feel delight at their downfall, I am human and feel this way due to the scarring that my parents and ancestors were put through. Those who went there, went there chasing wealth and a better life, hence I cannot feel sympathy for them either. I myself am a non-resident right now and its a chance I am taking. Dont get me wrong, America is a great place but not perfect either.

    I think Asians will be the first community that will be targeted when the first signs of street riots occur in the UK. There are 1.5 million Indians in the UK. The smart ones will see the collapse coming and return or migrate elsewhere. If they come home, they will come home with adequate wealth for India to digest that influx. I don't see a problem. Something like that will have an awesome impact on the Indian economy and brain drain will trickle to a top. We will learn to stay in our own country and innovate and be productive.

    They gloat at our misfortune, let them feel humiliated for a change. Time to rub in the wounds with salt! :D
