“Thatcher was Indian”
Well goodness, gracious me!! With a speech that sounded more like a script from the hit BBC comedy show, Nirj Deva startled an audience today at the Brussels gathering of the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin. He didn’t quite top the infamous “The royal family? Indian! Have arranged marriages, live in the same house and all work for the family business. Indian!” but wasn’t a million miles off.
“Milton Friedman is an Indian. Fredrick Von Hayek is an Indian. Margaret Thatcher is an Indian. Tony Blair is an Indian. And even George Bush is an Indian, though not a Red Indian”.
