Mass immigration has left Britain ‘unrecognisable’, says Nigel Farage

Mass immigration has left Britain an “unrecognisable” country that many people would not want to leave to their children and grandchildren, Nigel Farage has said.

In one of his strongest attacks on immigration policy, he said the arrival of migrants has some British people feeling that parts of the country are now alien to them.

The UK Independence Party leader said parts of the country had been “taken over” by foreigners and told how he caught a recent commuter train from London to Kent and had to wait for several stops before he heard English being spoken.

Walk around Maidan in the Morning

I strongly believe that there is something very sensual about watching a city wake up! Of course, that means you have to be comfortable with the idea of waking up well before sunrise. But, if you can, the experience is at the same time exhilarating and calming. Reason why I make it a point to always wake up early and go out for a walk( with my camera, of course) whenever I am in a new city.

And that is what ensures that in spite of all the shortcomings of my hometown, Calcutta, every time I go for a walk at the crack of dawn, I fall in love with my city all over again, warts and all.

And to walk in the morning, especially in winter, The Maidan is one place in Calcutta, I never tire of visiting. It may seem surprising to many, considering it is, as the name clearly suggest, just an open field!

But, it is a field which is teeming with life!

Spread over more than 5 sq. km, it is often called the lungs of Calcutta. Rumour has it, that the homesick British rulers created it to remind them of Hyde Park in London!

Advertising, when creative and imaginative, can go a long way to change this world, along with people’s hearts and minds.

UK: German Chancellor Angela Merkel addresses both Houses of Parliament in the Royal Gallery of the Palace of Westminster

Peace and Freedom

By Quentin Letts

To the murmuring, purring pleasure of Westminster’s massed Europhiles, the undisputed ruler of Germany and Continental Europe began the day in typically stolid fashion.

Angela Merkel’s mid-morning speech was an orthodox Brussels affair. It was only later in the day, at a Downing Street press conference, that she showed a flash of Brandenburg ankle. The miracles of a goodish lunch.

Modern Germany is a land of coalitions; they rather went off the single-party thing on April 30, 1945. Controlled, calm, level-decibel consensus is how they do things. Consensus compulsory.
