As last viceroy, Lord Mountbatten (in white dress uniform, centre
right) handed over to Jawaharlal Nehru (far right). It was Nehru’s work
that made secular democracy thrive in India
Born in Mumbai, Mihir Bose
has won numerous awards for his wide-ranging journalism over four
decades. Now the BBC’s sports editor, he reflects here on democracy in
India – and asks if the British really wanted their former colony to
Looking back to my paper submitted to then Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott 4 December 2004:
Ethnic Pluralism & Social Cohesion indicates that (i) Immigration
has not undermined national integrity (ii) Some immigrant groups have
progressed well, others not (iii) Labour market integration has been unwisely
downplayed (iv) Discrimination persists & thus affects social trust
(v) High risk, alienated, left behind groups are the priority (vi)
Building common glue is vital but so is the need to avoid overly prescriptive,
threatening answers. Promoting solidarity depends on underlying
(in)equality in a three-way triangular relationship thus solidarity <> equality <> diversity.
Thus building greater & more explicit cohesion across ethnic lines depends
on (i) understanding recent history (ii) learning the lessons of how economic
integration has worked abroad and (iii) systematically tackling settled
The Deputy PM’s Community Plan has completely missed Community
Cohesion as a critical issue within it. I am arguing that where there is no
injustice, unfairness &/or inequality – there can be no strife,
dissatisfaction, disappointment, disaffection, complaint or grievance.
In order for Britain to effectively manage and address the
internal risks of communal violence and (putting it bluntly) threats of
terrorism from left behind groups, it has to pay heed to my assertions
in the third paragraph (last page) that Discrimination persists & thus affects social trust.
Rest is history.

Britain stands accused of short changing the Ghurkhas. Tens of thousands of
them have fought for the British Empire forward. The government stands accused
tonight of reneging on an agreement to allow some 5,000 veterans to resettle
here. Instead, the qualifications of so doing are so high that only a hundred
are expected to make it here.
If I were consulted on whether I’d prefer thousands of uneducated, unwilling and unable to work, exclusivist illegal or even legal infiltrators/ immigrants hell bent upon fleecing the resources of this Country, committing crimes against citizens of this Country and the state rather than contribute to its social mobility and GDP compared to these exemplars who for generations have laid their lives on the line for this, I repeat this Country with second to none loyalty, bravery, dedication, courage and personal sacrifice – you very well know what my choice would be and more importantly what YOUR choice would be.
You may have voted for this unjust, uncaring and incompetent Government. You have a choice not to repeat the business their way. Exercise it with wisdom and understanding. I am, tonight, ashamed, like Joanna Lumley, to be British for we, the British, have failed these Gurkhas in discahrging our moral and legal obligations towards them. This is very hard for me to say this as my loyalty to Britain is beyond reproach.
If like me you think the Gurkhas and others like them have been treated unjustly – try the Jury Team and vote for us for imminent, indefinite and inevitable CHANGE.

After Mrs Sirima Bandaranaike [The world’s first woman prime minister,in Sri Lanka] , Mrs Indira Gandhi [nee Nehru] India’s first woman Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher [Britain’s first female PM] , I am very very glad that Barack Hussein Obama [with a gene pool from my birth country Kenya] who could not expect to be served in USA Restaurant 60 years ago as he asserted, has take the oath to be the 44th President of Diverse if not united and indiscriminate states of America.I wish him God’s speed, long life and two terms to do what he is here to do – deliver social, economic and environmental, political and religious justice.
He must address the balance between security and liberty, greed and responsibility which his predecessor got it very wrong. History has started. It will be made when he gets it right.So help him God.Aum ShantiAnant Full text: Obama speech
American dream will only become a reality and sustainable when the thinking, rhetoric, and actions become congruent with and exemplary of the CHANGE
It is the beginning of the day USA claimed their Country back. President Obama has 80% of the US mandate whilst exiting George Bush has merely 22% even lower than ****ing Nixon had in his lowest ebb 25%.
I hope that in all this euphoria the indigenous Indians are not excluded*

Dr [Mrs] Suzman, a member of parliament first for the opposition United
Party and later the Progressive Party, was an outspoken critic of
and the only white MP to have the conviction, courage, character and chutzpah to stand, in the minority of one, against apartheid.She was an exemplar who held her South African colleagues practising racial discrimination to account. A very rare breed of Atmas [souls] who exemplified human rights, social and racial justice and equality.
She was the only candidate, since the first South African parliament
was established in 1910, to be elected by a white constituency on a
platform that clearly rejected racial discrimination.
I am personally saddened by her loss from this ever strife stricken world. This World will be so much poorer and less just without the likes of her.
I hate bullies and like simple justice
