During recent visit of British prime minister ,Indians requested him to return Kohinoor to India.he said ,he can not. Why? So called Great Britain was looter and plunderer , prosperity came out by sucking colonies and torture, killings.David Cameron represents nation which is looter,so how can he return Kohinoor? Many Indians are naive and docile. In International Jungle of politics, such emotions have no place.USA was colony but liberated.I expect comments from open minded Americans.Long back I had filthy comments by Englishman on other issue.I discarded Churchill was villain.

You may think it silly and offensive, I don't.
Have to agree with John here - especially with the bedroom tax and the suicide it has already triggered, with it threatening to plunge more and more families and older people into poverty. What Cameron is doing can be seen as theft from the tax payer
Yes Sir, Bhopal tragedy is worst in world history, then our prime minster helped Paul Anderson CEO To flee. USA never allowed India to prosecute him.
Yes they will not return.The law of jungle is in force , let us wait we retaliate
weak governments can not do.
There has been massive mortgage fraud by Asian gangs in Britain - that's many millions they've stolen from Britain, and virtually none have even been prosecuted. Lot of tax dodging, too. You guys are not saints. People who live in glass houses ....
