I avoid being fed bull by the media and try to uncover as much of the impartial truth as possible, but voting UKIP, as a Sikh, is madness. I'm guessing there are certain issues on which they share common ground with certain Sikhs, but history has shown us that organisations such as these only truly reveal their hand and their intentions when they gain enough support and power to be beyond reproach. They aren't our friends - tbh neither are the other parties - but UKIP are BNP-lite in my opinion. At the moment they may seem like the plucky yet doddering upstart, feeling their way through the minefield of modern politics, going toe to toe with the big parties, but if they gain enough support things will not be good for anyone of an ethnic persuasion, particularly those of us who can be spotted from a mile away. There's something - ironically - rather oily about them I can't trust.

Have you sat down and thought this one through ? Clearly then, you haven't thought it through because that 'multiculturalism' you complain about is what lets you wear your dastar and kirpan as a rel

would you try one of the new parties like greens or ukip?

- UKIP supports the right of Sikhs to maintain the articles of their faith. You are conflating culture with religion. The two are entirely different. Multiculturalism, though it may have started w

I dont think the current UKIP is NF or BNP. They might have funny views on things but I don't think they are racist.

Not yet at least. It doesn't take much of a leap from their current policies for them to change things in order to appeal to the mob. I don't think they'll ever be in a position to dictate policy - Conservatives, Labour, and the Lib Dems have carved out that business between them quite nicely - but UKIP are doing what I'd do if I were in that position and of their ideological leaning; start out gentle, don't make any outlandish commwnts (I mean really mental, unelectable stuff like "all brown people go home"), then if the pendulum swings the right way and power is obtained it's time to reveal their real face. That true face of UKIP has not been seen yet. There's been hints as to what lies behind the mask, but not the full reveal. Just my opinion.

"This is what a feminist looks like unless we need to be hyprocrites and chase any vote going and disregard any principles we allegedly have ;-)"

The above would have made Alabama Governor George Wallace’s so proud with his famous speech ‘Segregation Now, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever’ as remembered as one of the most vehement rallying cries against racial equality in American history.

The leftist Islamic alliance sure is a strange one.

The left teaches equality of sexes, inclusion of homosexuals, equal rights for all and freedom of religion and conscience.

Islam teaches women are inferior to men, death to homosexuals, Muslims to be superior above all other religions and death to apostates.

A strange combination of ideas indeed.

On the subject of Ukip my own thoughts are they are an ultra rich party for the ultra rich who want to cut back public spending to zero and give even more tax breaks to their rich colleagues.

What they are doing is exploiting a justifiable fear namely too much of the wrong sort of immigration and too much money being shelled out to prop up a corrupt regime in Europe.

Now it's easy for me to start a party that promises solutions to your fears of the future but actually coming up with a solution when in power, well that's a different kettle of fish.

I'm thinking Ukip would be like the Republican party in the USA or the TEA party.

Like I say, I haven't decided which bunch of no good low life liars to vote for yet.

Any Sikh shouldn't vote. Sikhs don't do democracy, we do Sikh Sovereignty .

You forget that Sikhism is one of the most progressive and adaptive religion's in the world, we fit in wherever we go, saying Sikhs shouldn't vote and don't do democracy is complete and absolute nonsense, Sikhism promotes democracy and the belief that the welfare of people is best secured by their elected representatives, the Panj Pyare system is, in theory, democracy in action, they are elected by the community, they can only go forward with a decision if all 5 agree.

Your pathetic. Your speal is used by Sikhs who have ni discipline. Modern day British Slags.

There is no party with Silkh interests at heart. We will have to fight for our rights. Democracy will always dissapoint.

Your spiel is commonly used by Sikhs who wanna embrace everything western because it's trendy.

With respect, you talk about having discipline and in the same sentence are calling me pathetic, grow up son, in a debate, people have different opinions, and as far as being in the club of "Sikhs who wanna embrace everything western because it's trendy", sorry, far too old for that trendy stuff.

As far as Sikh interests at heart, what exactly do you want, we can't even look after our own and yet we're making demands from political parties, who, by the way, will make any old promises to get your vote.

If you have such a issue with democracy maybe you should move to India and see how that goes or better still, try China, they don't like democracy over there so you may fit in.

I don't generally get offended by stuff people write online, but I make an exception when someone i don't know think's they can judge me, there's only one who can do that.

You obviously realise demanding anything from politicians is futile so why vote? I hope you realise it's voters like you are begging politicians and kissing their bums. You are a seriously confused uncle. I have not regret in offending you.

    • Local authorities aren't eager to adopt private roads anymore, so all the residents will be liable for any costs in maintaining the road. New builds aren't really a great buy as they are overpriced and many companies are just cutting corners with shoddy workmanship. Personally I would never buy a new build. It is better to buy an older property after getting a full survey done and if there are issues highlighted in the survey such as leaky roof etc, you can negotiate a reduction with the seller. The older properties have been around for over 100 years while I bet some of the new builds will not last 50 years before they need major repairs and or/ demolition.  Although if the house is an investment and you have worked out all your numbers and want to sell after a few years or rent it out then I suppose this could be a good deal. As they say, make sure you do your due diligence. 
    • Punjab's GDP was $70 billion in 2020. If we take the example of UK Sikhs, I would estimate that each UK Sikh if they were to liquidate their property, their investments and their goods, each one would be worth about £100,000, that's taking account of the fact that many families who have been established here for more than 50 years are worth over a £1 million while the recent arrivals might only be worth a few thousand pounds, As the census showed, Sikhs have a higher level of property ownership (over 80%) then even the white population. In the UK property have grown hugely over the years. Taking the average of £100,000 then UK Sikhs have to potential to pump in $70 billion into Punjab about the same as the GDP. If the average of the UK is taken for the whole of the diaspora then this would mean the diaspora could potentially pump in $280 billion into Punjab in one go, four times the current GDP of Punjab if the diaspora were to return to Punjab. 
    • It depends on what the political geography is when they go back. If Punjab is independent then the influx of cash rich migrants back to their homeland will certainly be a big asset for Punjab. Given that a good number of the youth will be professionals like doctors, dentists, IT experts, accountants, lawyers etc this will mean that Punjab has the potential to become a IT hub as well as provide good quality healthcare for the population. Possibly even the creation of a national health service (NHS )in Punjab. With Punjab being independent, then the freedoms with which these diaspora Sikhs enjoyed aboard will have greater support and possibly stop any move towards authoritarianism in Punjab.  The diaspora is probably 2 million in number, so moving back they will create a strong demographic bloc which will need to be catered to by the politicians. Also they are more likely to vote in elections as well as take part in civic society than the native Punjabis. The only negative for the diaspora is that they also have major divisions such as being almost equally divided between British, Americans and Canadians. Add to these the smaller numbers of German, Italian, Malaysian, Singaporean, Myanmar and Australia/NZ and other Sikhs. These differences will be use by politicians to stop the diaspora becoming a strong voting bloc.  Certainly, the Punjab economy would see higher growth and the links that the diaspora has as well as their language skills will be a great asset for Punjabi companies wanting to trade with the west as well as with SE Asia and Japan. The Sikh diaspora from the middle east from places like Dubai, Kuwait, UAE and Qatar will also allow for Punjab to trade with these countries. Given that every jana khana diaspora Sikh is into IT, then Punjab would see a flurry of IT start ups and as with Israel you could see many Punjabi start up IPOs in the Nasdaq after a few years. You will also see greater mechanisation of agriculture and the move to stop the environmental damage being done to Punjab.  Along with all the economic advantage for Punjab the Punjab will also become a more interesting place, the Punjabi language will also undergo some change and probably new dialects of Punjabi being spoken in areas where a majority of the diaspora Sikhs have settled. Words from German, French, Malay, Italian will find their way into Punjabi. Also I think the 'Indian' accent of Punjabis will also change which in itself is worth separating Punjab for India just for that. Punjabis will start talking much more slowly because the young kids of the diaspora will never be able to understand the fast talking native Punjabis.  All in all it would make Punjab a much more interesting place and bring back the vibrancy for with Punjab was renowned in previous decades.   
    • United Sikhs latest great idea! helping Afghan Muslim students in India, while Afghan Sikhs are being forced out or threated with conversion to the death cult! You could not stoop lower than these FUD&US!   (1) UNITED SIKHS on Twitter: "The #Afghani #students in india  need your #help . As the Afghani students lost their world in the chaos, their parents are #struggling to stand back on their feet and help #educate their children in India. #Volunteer & #Donate us at : https://t.co/jUBaMvGlTq https://t.co/i6NaLuxuwq" / Twitter  
    • KA and United Sikhs have tried lately to defend their idiocy by showing how they are also helping Sikhs by posting some pictures and videos online. I think even they know now that Ravi Singh attempt to act like some Gurdwara Pardhan and block anyone critical of him is now not working. Either they change their actions or they will lose what support they have among Sikhs.  My hope is that Sikh and Punjab focussed charities like YourSeva and Sikh Relief overtake their two liberal charities. They harm these two have done far outweighs what little good they have done for Sikhs.
