The descent of Great Britain from one of the greatest superpowers in history into a third world shambles has been as spectacular as the rise of India in the opposite direction. If this seems like an exaggeration then a cursory look at the facts should put the minds of any doubters at rest.
I've had the privilege of visiting and working in India several times during my expatriate career so I have witnessed this remarkable transformation first hand. I have also witnessed first hand the willful destruction of my own country at the hands of a self serving political class who usurped political power in order to implement a global 'progressive' agenda on behalf of an anonymous elite.
In 1979 myself and three others purchased an Indrail pass for fifty US dollars each, this gave us unlimited travel on the extensive Indian railway system for a month or so. It allowed us an opportunity to experience a lot of India first hand; cities, towns and villages were all on the itinerary with the objective of seeing as much as possible and meeting as many people as time allowed.
I won't go into it here only to say that the culture shock was huge and the poverty worse than I had ever imagined. My second visit was a two month assignment to Bombay in 1986. Signs of change were already evident and there appeared to be a certain unexplainable confidence developing which I had missed on my previous visit.
My third visit was a week long assignment in New Delhi which only allowed a cursory mingling with the locals and a trip around the tourist trails of Old and New Delhi.
My final visit was a four year assignment starting in 2002; based in New Delhi I took care of all the company businesses across India and Bangladesh. This assignment came as big a shock as my first one in 1979; poverty was still extensive but much reduced, it appeared to be on the fringes of the modern towns and industrial areas which were as prosperous as anywhere in the developed world.
The pace of change was stunning; even in my four years there were new highways and subway systems built in New Delhi; the modern satellite city of Gurgaon was expanding at great pace and included golf courses, country clubs and ultra modern shopping malls.
The biggest change was in the people; they were mainly young, educated, talented and highly motivated, they were also ambitious and had a confidence born of optimism for the future. Indian institutions were still rife with corruption particularly in political life and this was holding the country back; I formed the impression that when the people take control and clean this up, India will take its place in history as a superpower.
Reading about the launch of India's first home built aircraft carrier and its extensive military capabilities, including intercontinental nuclear capability, came as no surprise but adding to that their space program and their economic advances, it inevitably leads to comparisons with their former colonial masters.
'Great' Britain has gone in the opposite direction of India with a downtrodden population robbed of their heritage and with little confidence in the future. The people are crippled with a fear of political correctness, their towns and cities are being transformed into multi-cultural crime ridden ghettos and their standard of living is dropping faster than their house prices.
'Great' Britain and it's unique culture is being deliberately dismantled and the country downgraded in the cause of equality of nations and cultural relativity.
Apart from being a nuclear power, India has a functioning space programme, something 'Great' Britain gave up on during the socialist disaster of the Harold Wilson years.
India's economy is booming while 'Great' Britain's economy is continually in the doldrums; it is hamstrung by over regulation, taxation and political interference by agenda driven politicians. While India is looking at growth rates of between 5 and 8%, the British Chancellor is trying to spin a growth rate of 1.5% as a monumental success.
'Britannia Rules The Waves' no more; known as the senior service of the British military, the Royal Navy is a laughing stock with almost as many Admirals and Rear Admirals as they have ships. What kind of genius spends billions on a new aircraft carrier that doesn't have any aircraft?
'Great' Britain's once feared military has been hung, drawn and quartered by successive governments in search of ever more money to spend on social programs for their various voting bases.
The military strength of India is now greater than that of 'Great' Britain, whose capabilities are now only slightly better than bankrupt Italy.
Despite overtaking 'Great' Britain, joining the developed world and having more billionaires, in an act of unexplainable delusion, the British government continues to give development aid to India.
The explanation that the long suffering taxpayers have been given by their ever so trendy, 'progressive' Prime Minister is that David Cameron "firmly believes that the British people shouldn't become prosperous on the backs of the world's poor".
The Department of International Development has been forced, very reluctantly, to reconsider taxpayer handouts to India after their Finance Minister, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, told them that India doesn't need then and doesn't want them. The fact that India has a development aid programme of its own didn't seem to register with the spendaholics at Westminster.
The descent of 'Great' Britain into third world status can be laid at the door of the self serving political class and the brain dead idiots who continue to put them into power.
In direct contradiction to the British people, the Indian people are allowed by their government to be family orientated, patriotic, proud of their heritage, proud of their culture, proud to be Indian and they are not ashamed of who they are.
The Indian people are busy getting educated and working hard in order to join the burgeoning middle class. They are not obsessing about gay marriage, sexuality, multi-culturalism, diversity, equality and fairness, political correctness or any of the other 'progressive' nonsense that is being forced down the throats of the British people.
If the British people want to reverse the decline and have a prosperous future like our Indian brothers and sisters, then they must throw out the political charlatans that are responsible for their destruction and they must do it at the earliest possible opportunity otherwise it will be too late.
