What we could have bought for the foreign "aid" money

My friends over at Think Defence paint a nice picture of what we could have bought if we had not given £2 billion to India over the past 10 years. You know the country with its own space program who are buying more C-17s than we are.

£2 bn. would have bought us e.g. 220,000 prothetic legs. Could be useful what with all those pesky IEDs lying around.

Furthermore might I suggest that we raise one large middle finger to the Yanks in the West (particular the Democrats with Obama in the lead) and another massive piss off to the EU to the East of us. It would seem that we are currently being caught in the middle, and parties appear to be taking turn in screwing us over.
