Where Our Money Goes

Why is the UK giving £825 million in aid to India? Shouldn't this be used to build the Lewes-Uckfield high-speed rail link?
India is a much richer nation than England and is busy buying up foreign companies left right and centre. The only remaining issue of poor infrastructure is already being addressed with massive investment and building programs. The cows on city streets are harmless and certainly don't warrant £825 million in aid.

There might a debate to be had about how much aid to give India, but your claim that India is richer than England is laughable.

I saw a documentary about Mumbai - I could not afford to sell up my Lewes house and buy a nice appartment in Mumbai! Its like most places - the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. I'm not saying it is not a poor country by our standards but I am sure they can stand on their own two feet by now. Most of our IT business is being moved there which surely should make them richer.

Lewes to Uckfield rail link will never happen in my view.
It wouldn't warrant the investment for the use it would get.
