Luton?- more like Karachi

Reader comment on item: "A Jilbab in the School's Colors"

Submitted by Mike Randall (United Kingdom), Apr 3, 2006 at 16:29

In the early 70's I lived a couple of miles from Luton in a small village. I rarely went into town, however, on one particular day I unavoidably ventured in - to be confronted by literally hundreds of Pakistanis marching down the High street, demanding that a British policeman, who had been guarding the Indian Embassy in London be tried for murder. This officer had apparently shot and killed a Pakistani who had broken into the Embassy at a time when India and Pakistan were at war.

My reason for going into town- to pick up my travel documents as I was emigrating. Unfortunately, I came back hoping that the place had improved.Sadly it appears that Towns like Luton have only got worse and are now effectively foreign enclaves.
