In the Woods.

Nothing appears to me to show the craziness of humans more that the antics of India,

Some 70 percent of households in India don't have access to toilets, whether in rural areas or urban slums. Roughly 60 percent of the country's 1.2 billion people still defecate in the open.May 12, 2016

And yet they can finance and spend so much time for a failed space mission to the dead rock we call Moon. [Corner Shop survey?]

Priorities Eh?-----pass the San Izal Sahib.

Re: In the Woods.

I think the UK is still giving aid to India. Maybe we should ask something in return. Surely Doris would like to be the first UM PM to fly to the moon.

Having checked this I cannot see India on the list, but the list may be interesting to others.

Really?...

India-toilets.jpg

The latest data from the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM) portal suggests that 27 out of India's 36 states and Union territories are now open defecation free (ODF) with 98.6% of Indian households having access to toilets.

Connection to loos is unclear

But surely it is the educated that become rich and better they rule than the lesser educated (although current events in other countries would suggest otherwise 😊 ).

Or are you suggesting that India is particularly corrupt ?

india-corruption-rank.jpg

India is the 78 least corrupt nation out of 175 countries, according to the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index reported by Transparency International. Corruption Rank in India averaged 75.67 from 1995 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 95 in 2011 and a record low of 35 in 1995.

And religious zealots will cause problems in any country.
