Indians taking over Britain?

Lord Archer: ‘Indians are the new Jews and are taking over Britain’

Touring India to promote his latest book, Tory peer Lord Jeffrey Archer proclaimed that Indians are the ‘new Jews’ of Britain, that Indian businessmen are ‘taking over’ Britain and that Indian mayors and councillors are taking over local government throughout the country.

Britain will one day day be ruled by an Indian prime minister, Archer added in a television interview staged in a glitzy new shopping mall near Delhi. “It is going to be taken over by Indians, and I don’t joke,” he said.

“Now what you [Indians] are doing is what the Jews did 30-40 years ago when the came to England after the war. They took over the local councils and they became mayors. Now they are in Parliament. The Indians are now taking over the local councils. There are mayors all over England who are Indian."

According to a post in AlterMedia, Archer's comments came in the wake of a number of Indian takeovers of major British companies, such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Corus Steel and the Scottish whisky giant Whyte and Mackay.
