Well, we WERE kind of screwing them over for a good two hundred years. Possibly we owed them something.

Wow. It's a good thing America doesn't send money to already-rich countries that do nothing good for us in return.
Dumb Limeys.

Politics exists outside the US.

It's definitely foreign policy, and is a subtle jab at perhaps how the US subsidizes other countries that may not exactly need our money (or troops).

Though we belted you and flayed you, by the living God wot made you, it's cash up front from now on. No credit.

And if you want to see real poverty--entrenched because of corruption and caste--there's no place like India.

The British basically raped and plundered India for +300 years.

Not sure a country that is spending between 30 and 50 billion dollars on military equipment next decade actually deserves aid.

This is like saying you are going to stop getting the Lucky Charms off the shelf for the tallest dwarf in a group of dwarfs, and only get it for the others.

Really? According to Wikipedia, "the economy of India is the tenth largest in the world by nominal GDP and the third largest by purchasing power parity (PPP)." It's one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.

India no longer needs a helping hand. It's time to wean that middle-aged banker off the teat, and let some of the starving toddlers have a go.

They have nuclear weapons and a space program. They don't need the UK's money any more.
