Cameron Set to Persuade India to Buy 100 Eurofighter Jets

CAMERON SET TO PERSUADE INDIA TO BUY 100 EUROFIGHTER JET – Now call me a cynical but didn’t David Cameron announce this week that he was throwing open the immigration doors to students from India wanting to study, live and work in the UK?

That’s right he did – read: Cameron Opens Immigration Doors Even Wider

This week David will be jetting off, no doubt in 1st Class or by Private Jet to have a chat with India’s Prime Minister in order to persuade him to sign a contract that is worth £6 billion.

Now it is no big secret that the French and the British don’t really get along, I guess saving their backsides in World War II simply wasn’t enough of a gesture of friendship, although it was in our interests to keep the Nazis at bay.

This week David will be jetting off, no doubt in 1st Class or by Private Jet, to have a chat with India’s Prime Minister in order to persuade him to sign a contract that is worth £6 billion, something that the French President has been trying to do; without much success.

While I certainly appreciate that this is great for exports and trade it leaves an extremely bad taste in my mouth.

For starters India, according to David Cameron, is a poor country that is in desperate need of the British Taxpayers help; which is why we give India millions of pounds in Foreign Aid each year.  Unfortunately this doesn’t hold water as India already has its own Space Programme and now we find out that £6 billion could be spent on buying fighter jets.  That’s doesn’t sound like a poor country to me.

Again, while this is admirable, in terms of trade, this is simply a ploy to boost the sale and export of the Eurofighter Jet, by scratching the back of India’s Prime Minister with the open door immigration policy of students.

The question here is how much is this going to cost the British Taxpayer when all these students are unable to find gainful employment after their studies and then live off the benefits system?

Like any Government to Government deal you can be assured that this type of investment is not made without a lot of concessions and while it may look good on the surface for exports and trade the British people will no doubt end up paying for it in the long run.
