When my grandparents arrived in the UK from India in the 1950’s there was little to welcome them. They weren’t allowed into certain jobs, mainstream society or even on the grass. Aside from the fledgling diaspora, the only other support came from the Labour Party. They offered a hand of friendship and an arm of protection. In return, the Indian community gave their votes, loyalty and heart – for generations. In our family, as well as a blotchy mess, you exit the womb two things: A Sikh and a Labour voter. I saw through the God gobbledegook years ago, and now I, and countless other British Indian’s – both young and old – walk away from Labour.
