BritPak: Difference Through Enterprise

Creating an Institution of positive contribution to the UK, and for British Pakistanis

Welcome to our July 2016 edition of the Indus Club newsletter #5

Belated Eid Mubarak to everyone, irrespective of faith and nationality.

Recent weeks have seen considerable political change in the UK. Firstly the Referendum result means we are heading for Brexit, a momentous decision and event. In our view it creates uncertainty for the UK and our economic progress.

This was followed by the resignation of PM, David Cameron causing a leadership election. The election was marred by Michael Gove's betrayal of Boris Johnson (Gove had earlier betrayed Cameron). The election had a few more turns, but finally Theresa May has been elected leader. She has had a good long survival stint at the home office, but little to positively commend her other than being a determined and hard worker. Not much achieved to benefit the nation. 

May has announced her new cabinet and the press has reported the changes as monstrous culling. Time will tell, but we fear her honeymoon as leader may be short lived. The very competent David Davis has been handed the high profile poisoned chalice of Brexit, and Boris Johnson been given Foreign Office - after abusing Europe, USA, China, and numerous other foreign countries. Prity Patel is given International Development, after calling for overseas aid (her parents arrived as refugees) to be scrapped.

Seems a circus!

At the same time there has been a revolt in Labour against Jeremy Corbyn who only 10 months ago was elected as leader with the biggest-ever membership mandate. Sad that an honest and principled man is being so badly treated due to right wing press narrative.

The labour big guns stay in the background whilst Owen Smith (who?!) challenges.

Indus Club simply hopes we can see honesty and principles return to our political spectrum in the UK.

Sadly, one of the greatest humanitarians of all time passed away recently, and we have devoted our Icon #2 status deservedly to him.

The cricket series between England and Pakistan has just commenced, so lets hope for a challenging and entertaining series, and no controversies. The first Test Match was an excellent spectacle and riveting viewing and could have gone either way, but Pakistan just edged it. Roll on the next Test Match at Old Trafford starting on Friday 22nd July.
