Late to the party, but if you don't want to hear any opinions other than those you agree with, it kind of is an echo chamber.

The Tejas is a lemon, and not sure why the UK would want anything to do with it. Also, after abstaining the Security Council yesterday, India can take a running jump as far as I'm concerned.
