How can anyone justify giving aid to India these days? Help in a humanitarian crisis yes, but not year on year budgeted aid.

India also has a space programme which has sent around 100 satellites to space.

Not a cheap activity, so why should the UK keep sending aid.

The whole aid program needs a good overall.

To be fair India does send aid back to the UK. the Venky family are supporting Blackburn Rovers to the tune of 120 million pounds.

That's not aid that's a supporting donation for a much failing soccer team.

Nothing wrong with foreign aid programs if they are properly monitored – they aren’t.

Yes INDIA again, but when are these never ending hand-outs going to stop?
Any reference for this or is it Daily Mail style facts? A newspaper article would be nice.
