Noon calls for banon immigration
Monday 01 December 2008
One of the country's highest-profile Indian-born businessmen has said Britain should close its borders to all immigrants for up to 10 years.
Sir Gulam Noon, known as the "Curry King" because of his ready-meals firm, said a ban was required to prevent potential racial unrest. "I strongly feel that whoever are the immigrants here, we better give them jobs and give them dignity to live here before we import some more," he told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show.
"I do not want a situation whereby a party like the BNP says 'listen, all your jobs are being taken away by immigrants'." The suggestion that a ban could last up to a decade comes from a forthcoming autobiography, the Mail on Sunday reported.
It said Mr Noon writes in the book: "We should wait for five or 10 years, until all the newcomers have been properly integrated and assimilated into the country.
Until then we should just shut the door."
