One cannot avoid making the comment (at least, I can't) that as we see the homeland (and indeed adopted home city) of Dr Rajendra Pachauri make such a sterling performance of the Commonwealth Games, we can at least rely on them for their financial probity and good sense, when it comes to dealing with the consequences of global warming.

.....and who can be convinced that India has the economy of the future and is an investor's nirvana? Still, to Dave's delight, at least we still help them out with dollops of aid - much better spent there than putting right a sink estate.

At least they have their priorities right ... you have to pay a bribe to submit your tax return, as well as the ususal bribe to make sure it isn't questioned.

The residents of Delhi have hoped with all their hearts that the central excuse for making their lives miserable for the past 3 years or so, fail. They know the deals and the pillage that have gone on in the name of the Games.

Related:

In 2003 the Coca Cola soft-drinks were found to contain high levels of pesticide residues, in India. This was confirmed further in 2006 by the PML of the Centre for Science and Environment, the same agency which picked up Hasnain's glacier claims in 1999 in their otherwise quite-decent environmental magazine, Down to Earth. Coca Cola responded by hiring celebrities like Aamir Khan and others to proclaim to the public that their products manufactured in India are "safe". Contradictorily, Coca-Cola justified its operations by insisting it cannot do any better if the very groundwater was filled with pesticides from agricultural run-off, owing to slack environmental enforcement.

The company also employed a 'third-party' to perform an 'assessment' of its product quality - the Meridien Institute. This institute subcontracted the pesticide assessment to an "well-respected" and "dynamic flexible research organization".

This organization then declared Coca Cola drinks to be "free from pesticides" at all stages of manufacturing.

The name of this organization - "The Energy and Resources Institute".

Apologies for this mind-numbing trivia. PDT_Armataz_01_22

The sooner our ruling elite lose their infatuation with the third world and refocus on what works best for the prosperity of the individual; ie Western civilisation; the sooner we can return to being normal, progressive (no, not progressive as in marxist, rather progressive as in the original meaning of the word) country. We are better than the majority of the world. That's why we have acheived so much over the years, with no more advantages than anyone else. What we didn't do was bleat about how badly done by we are and then wait for the likes of Geldoff to swear at easy targets, for money to be given to us for doing absolutely, bloody nothing. If some of these third world scroungers were left to sink or swim by their own intelligence and hard work, the better the world would be. And if these third worlders want to live with corruption all their lives, who are we to stop them. Just don't give them any of my money, please.

Shocking photographs revealed by BBC and others. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/commonw ... 025907.stm
Warning: The graphic images might affect your appetite.

The entire Games fiasco is perfectly summed up in the name of Delhi's glorious Chief Minister - Sheila Dikshit.

(She prefers spelling it "Dixit" for obvious reasons, but the pronunciation remains unchanged)

John, western elite and eastern elite differ only in skin colour. They come up with similar schemes to siphon off public money, so their partnership will last forever. In fact, India's elite invited Britain to rule because it was more profitable. Now west is doing the same. All countries should close their borders and return all natives to their homes. This ridiculous charade of diversity will be the death of cultural identity. For east and the west.

I agree completely. The two biggest problems of India are: Brain-drain out of India and Western aid coming in.

Our talent takes flight at the first opportunity while the rest battle the Frankenstein of corruption which refuses to die. Corrupt elite draw strength from covert western support, as in the case of a banana republic where people have no say. Just cut off the aid. They spent more than 10 billion pounds on the CWG and all we got was a pile of mud.

I would say, Dik by nature and shit for brains.

Typical vacuous member of the Inner Circle of Nehru Dynasty. All "selected", never elected. They enjoy long innings without scoring. Never sent back to the pavilion and always retire unhurt.

@Shub Niggurath: Thanks Shub! Glad to see you here too.
