    I see nothing interesting about the debate, just an awesome ignorance of colonial history by the Britisher.

    I have never seen anywhere else the kind or overweening arrogance as will be found there.

    But if the Brits want to behave that way, maybe fewer people will hate Yanks. :-D

    The tough-talking military types there just sound like homosexual rough trade, IMHO.

    We have too many anglophiles. If it were up to me, Simon Cowell would have been deported years ago.

    You Guys have heaps of patience and yes patience prevails longer. I would have gone like this by calling those mutants out and asking them why their thug forefathers invaded my nation in first place. They breed all over the planet and were able to illegally make many continents and Islands part of their commonwealth.

    Do these scum bags have any right to talk about Indian population ?

    The aim is not to show our patience, but to ensure that convoluted opinions based on false premise is not left unchallenged, lest the falsity remains as 'facts' for others on the forum (and their equally ignorant countrymen) to be taken as the actual reality!

    It would also be fair to state that not all in that forum are roughnecks and instead are quite educated and are gentlemen.

    Last time, GK, apart from others, put them in place.

    But GK seems to have equalled them in their colloquialisms and in syntax that is his unique signature.

    Here is an Englishman's comment.

    There are educated and enlightened people on that forum too!

    Busterdog is his moniker

    Good heavens, the subject is cessation of aid to India while continuing to give money to vaccinate the poor of that country not the Wiki guide to the Partition of India.

    India has politely declined to accept any more financial aid from the UK, seems to me a win - win for both countries. The Indian government also really, and to my mind understandably, doesn't want foreign NGOs getting themselves involved in vaccination/education programmes in their country, so if the democratically elected government of India say no thanks why does the British government arrogantly insist, despite, judging by the vitriol on this thread, the feelings to the contrary of their constituents, on continuing with it? Political influence?

    Not going to comment on the travesty of 'Partition' other than it should never have been allowed to happen, it was an atrocity inflicted on innocent people by obscenely power hungry manipulative politicians, of whom I believe Jinnah to have been the worst, and cowardly retreating buck passing colonialists. Were it not for partition secular, democratic India's industrial revolution would have happened decades before it did and 'Pakistan' would not be the religiously radical, ramshackle, impoverished, dangerous place it now is.

    Oh, and cholera vaccination? It works - back in the dark ages, before we deployed overseas we were all inoculated against cholera, smallpox, and yellow fever. None of us succumbed to those diseases. As Rayc mentioned though 'bugs' locals were immune to laid us low. I caught lepto-spirosis through poor water discipline one patrol though the tracker who also drank water from the same source was as right as rain.

    Generations of my family served in India from the 18th century right up to independence they have a lot to be proud of though much to be ashamed of.
    One thing is undeniable however is the debt of gratitude we shall forever owe to the Indian Army.

    There are certainly educated and enlightened people in Britain but the trash shout louder and thus are heard more often. This phenomenon is not unique to Britain but occurs around the globe.
