Keep out of Kashmir

According to this bishop Britain should be getting involved in Kashmir because (a) we started it and (b) we have lots of (second and third generation) Pakistanis and Indians who are just waiting to bust the bejesus out of one another.

One would have to point out that we left India more than fifty years ago, and the Kashmir fight developed when India decided to annex any vulnerable piece of territory, as the Nazim of Hyderabad could testify.

The immigration question is harder to answer, although anyone who thinks that there will be no repurcussions from the present influx of assylum seekers from Afghanistan or the Balkans may not be "mad, literally mad" - but they come close.
