British overseas aid - Money well spent ?

A few years ago I asked why it was that we are giving £825 million in aid to India.

Today we read that India is to spend more double the amount we give them in aid on a space programme to put Indian astronauts in to space.

Is it really a good use of our money in these hard times to gives British taxpayers money to fund projects in India when the Indian government seem to think that a space programme is more important ?

You are right. The whole thing needs looking at, and given the problems we have at home we need to be very careful on who we give money to.
