Sir Gulam Noon is a UK citizen who immigrated to the UK in 1966, when he was one of the few Indians there, and made a great deal of money selling Indian food. He was visiting Bombay during the terrorist attacks, and survived by barricading himself in his hotel room,
and being rescued by a crane at the window.
The Daily Mail
says "His remarks on immigration, made in his new autobiography, are some of the most outspoken ever made by a senior member of Britainâ€™s ethnic population."
Of course they`re more or less in line with what the late Enoch Powell,
a moderately senior member of Britain`s British population, saidÂ in his famous speech in 1968
Briefly, Sir Gulam thinks the country is getting full of unassimilable immigrants, and should consider a moratorium.
â€?Bluntly, I think we are self-sufficient now,â€™ he writes. â€?We should wait for five or ten years, until all the newcomers have been properly integrated and assimilated into the country. Until then we should just shut the door.â€™The tycoon, who has made Â?65million from his ready-meal business, added: â€?We can only accommodate so many. If the room will only hold ten people, hold a meeting for ten people and not 20. It is simple logic. There is always a danger that for the sake of political correctness, or a partyâ€™s political advantage, we find ourselves filling up the country with too many immigrants who will disturb the balance and upset the people, particularly the young people, of the host community.â€™Sir Gulam says Ministers should make full employment a higher priority than relaxed immigration. â€?We should switch the focus to ensuring everyone has a job. Today some of them are getting the dole and a free house for doing nothing. We have made them parasites.â€™[Curry king Sir Gulam Noon calls for a ten-year ban on all migrants By Glen Owen Last,Â November 29th, 2008]
