In this capitalist society where everything is viewed in a prism of whats-in-it-for-me there's always something that is given in return. Your business uses our market etc. Also how about what was already taken from us then ? How about if the UK can either stop moaning about giving aid when it looted it from those countries not long before ?
    Not quite correct , we are being taxed to death here , and some people are now having to go to food banks to survive , we have a bloody good right to moan watching our hard earned flying all over the world .. hmmm looted from other countries huh , nahhhhhhhhh thats all been spent

    Still this little gem is still available , sue the UK for its return ?

    Well we are equally taxed here in India , since not sure what kind of tax laws you have I will leave it at it saying every country has taxes and we are not Dubai either. All spent on the lands in your country. Funded your wars and made the UK richer. You lot were clever I will give you that. Just because the UK spent the loot doesn't negate the fact that it was stolen in the first place. We maybe not in a position to command the UK to give us back our treasures. But I am willing to bet that one day the UK would definitely give them back.

    By the way Defcon5, re-registering after you've been previously banned is against the forum rules.

    Have a nice day.
