I would say England has created a no-win for itself. I would also say, it intended to do so. It is racist if it doesn’t give preferential treatment to any non-classical British person, and it is racist when it does. Congratulations leftists in England. You won. I guess all the white, culturally and historically English people should now just pack up and go back to where they came from.
In any case, kudos to this women. She has the right fight. She is more English than many in high office today there it would seem.
- Furious mum-of-three insists she was ‘insulted’
- Says she is determined to stick up for other Asians

A woman has branded her daughter’s school as racist after she was sent a letter in Hindi – despite the fact she speaks English.
Mother-of-three Raheela Ahmed insists the only reason she was sent the letter was because of her Asian name.
She said: ‘I have been really offended. It is just insulting to send me a letter in another language.
‘I think it was in Hindi and they have just assumed because of my surname that I speak one of those languages.
‘You are trying to be racist towards me – this is how I felt when I got the letter.’
A qualified classroom assistant, Mrs Ahmed of Seaton Burn, North Tyneside, has lived in England for 15 years.
The letter outlined times she could drop her daughter Aysha, eight, off at school as she had been dropped off too early.
She said: ‘The only thing I could understand was the date, a time of 8.45am and my daughter’s name.
‘I’ve raised this with the head teacher not only for me but because of other Asian women.
‘The headteacher is responsible for the correspondence that leaves the school and she shouldn’t have done that.’
