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 Britain’s ethnic population."
Briefly, Sir Gulam thinks the country is getting full of unassimilable immigrants, and should consider a moratorium.
”Bluntly, I think we are self-sufficient now,’ he writes. ”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.’
The tycoon, who has made £65million from his ready-meal business, added: ”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 party’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.’
Sir Gulam says Ministers should make full employment a higher priority than relaxed immigration. ”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.’
