Interesting tidbits

1) On Friday 10th November the Memorial Gates Commemorative Committee is holding its fourth annual wreath laying ceremony on Constitution Hill. Led by Baroness Shreela Flather, it pays tribute to the huge contribution made by the five million men and women from the Indian subcontinent, Africa and the Caribbean who volunteered to serve with the British Armed Forces during the First and Second World Wars.

2) Saw a little piece today on 17 year old Kiran Matharu becoming the UK’s youngest female golf player with a scratch handicap. She made the news recently too in Dubai, is profiled here and even has her own website already. (As a sidenote my dad had always wanted me to become a professional golf player but I could never see myself doing that).

    Lest Amir and other bigots forget.

    Anas,

    I kindly suggest that you shut your trap.

    Thank you to everyone who did their bit during WWs I and II, allowing me to be here today.

    I’m not surprised. Girls love their Golfs. Bet they’d also be rather good at Polo

    I apologise if my remarks caused offense, Amir. My point related to a previous thread when I pointed out that many Muslims from the subcontinent had fought and died for Britain in WW2 and that you and others like the BNP seemed to have forgotten this when you talked about the rights and wrongs of immigrants from the subcontinent living here.

    These foreigners, they come over here, take our jobs, go to other foreign countries and kill foreigners in our queen’s name…
