Gordon’s Britishness finds Indian Echo

As Brits take Indian sensitivity courses to help them fit in. Sounds a good idea, and we should provide similar courses (which are privately run). But I feel Brown’s Britishness will be a set of abstract meanderings about how being British means voting Labour, rather than a practical guide to getting along.

In other India news, Dan Hannan sees India as part of the Anglosphere. I have never visited so find it hard to comment, apart from pointing out that English speaking there is widespread but not a first language like in Oz or Canada. Still they are certainly Commonwealth, an institution I hope hasn’t had its day (unlike the EU).
