UK politics

Recommended Posts

Boris is out. How does one lose confidence from his own party. Unimaginable in Indian context. Somebody pls explain UK politics. Cameron resigned after he lost brexit, Boris won an election and was appointed leader of Tory legislative party. Doesn’t the chief whip tell all whom to vote? 
 

Anyway Rishi Sunak (Narayan Murthy’s son-in-law) is leading to be the successor . Priti Patel too. A lot of Indian and Pakistani origin politicians in the Conservative party these days.

A lot of non white Tories going for it- Sunak, Javid, Baverman, Zahawi... however the Typical tory voter or the general white population is NOT ready for a Non white Prime minister yet.. They wont win the Conservative member ballot vote unfortunately

If the Conservative MPs vote through 2 non white contenders the Conservative membership have no option but to vote one as leader unless the 100,000+ membership all don't vote . As Ben Wallace is not standing I think Sunak will become leader . Bookies clear favourite at the moment

So public voted members of parliament and Conservative party members who are registered voters together vote for the PM?

the list of candidates require 

A) a number of MPs supporting  them to continue ( not revealed yet but I think about 25-30)

B)Conservative MPs then through a series of votes whittle it down to two 

C) Those final two will be put to the membership for a vote of who will be the conservative leader

Rishi Sunak had thrown his hat in and his wife is criticized for serving tea in cups costing £38 each. It seems this amount can feed a family for 2 days and she is called tone deaf -whatever that means. It's just £38, not £300! The same British public have no issues with sponsoring a royal family and the queen footing her errant son Andrew's massive legal bills!

I must be honest. Murty's elite children are pain.

Why do people keep referring to these people as Indian ,they are just rootless career oriented people .They dont give a * about us nor should we bother about them.

Not rootless, but ruthless! Long time career politician Keith Vaz was accused of bullying. Priti Patel, another PM post contender like Rishi Sunak, is also accused of being a bully. Imagine thriving in dangerous places like Africa, getting booted out from there to resettle and thrive even more in the UK - only strong willed, ruthless people can do it.

Most are referring to them as India origin not Indians. A politician is a politician irrespective of county, you think rahul gandhi or akhilesh yadav care about any of us ? only thing every single one of them cares about to 'kursi'. I am happy that one from India or even pakistan will be PM UK within 75yrs of them leaving this country.

As if India is a nice place to live .

 

 

They are individualists.Individualism is an euphemism for selfishness .West entertains them to show that they are now open to the
rest of the world but it's not for nothing,in return they want their pound of flesh and push their own agendas everywhere.


Again I am not saying they are all horrible or worse than any of us ,but if they dont give a * ,then neither do I.

Mostly Indians fall for such people. It's like they made such a big deal out of Obama ,what did he do for African Americans or Africa or Muslims ?They are put in power by the establishment mostly for PR ,they dont represent anyone .

No there are tens of thousands of Indians here in the UK who came from Africa and have done well. They had the advantage of going to schools in which they learnt English which helped them a lot when they came here. They were certainly set up for UK life better than Indians who came directly from India. 

 

In terms of Africa being dangerous, I believe these Indians were protected by the British not to mention that India in the 60s and 70s was full of diseases like Polio.

I haven't heard of Sunak being a bully. Also being a bully is the least of Keith Vaz's problems, he was caught using male prostitutes despite being married with children. Even then he tried to resume a career in politics.
