A few changes on the links list to reflect changing times - it's goodbye to "Pickled Politics", it's one thing opposing government policy, but proclaiming "it's time for "brown" people to vote Conservative" gets you off my endorsed list.Sunny (of Pickled Politics) rephrased himself a little the next day.
For those "brown people" thinking of turning Tory, this story should add a note of caution. (Updated: more here. Worth adding, for those of you who don't know: Munira Mirza is a veteran of the RCP.)
However, the idea that brown people should be most against more draconian anti-terror legislation, or even more for anti-racist initiatives, is wrong. There is evidence to suggest that there have been Asian BNP voters in Coventry (not to mention the Asian Tories who represent Foleshill in the council there) and Birmingham. And there is no reason why Asian people should not be as frightened of Islamist terror attacks as white people are.
