              Make sure you bleed the radiators before you go. Don't forget to let your accountant know, so he can sort out payment of your final tax bill.

                  You should fit right in

                  Esha Gupta: Has Instagram exposed everyday racism in India? - BBC News

                  That changed after the actress decided to share a screengrab of a WhatsApp conversation in which a friend mocked the team's Nigerian star, Alex Iwobi, as a "gorilla" and "Neanderthal" who "evolution had stopped for"."Hahaha," wrote the actress, who helped Arsenal unveil its 2017 away kit, as she shared the screengrab with her 3.4m Instagram followers.
                  The racist slurs - and the fact she thought it was funny - horrified many, and the backlash was unsurprisingly swift. How dare she call herself an Arsenal supporter, her fellow fans demanded.
                  Gupta apologised quickly, but the post hints at a long-known - but little acknowledged - problem of racism towards people of African descent in Indian society.
                  "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

                  I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

                    An immigrant myself. Used to call myself indian but not any more - rather, I am from one of india's own unwilling colonies.

                    Britain gave me a safe place, opportunity, fairness, and hope for which I am grateful.
                    My personal values align with the values of this country (or what I learnt of them as I did pass the citizenship test).

                    The idea of the EU single market had appealed to me, so had voted remain.

                    But now that it seems to be heading for some turbulent times, I feel a duty to stand by this country.
                    Its just that the IT career has caused a lot of burnout. I wish I could afford to buy a small fully self-sustained farm with a hut somewhere away from cities.
                    And I don't know what I should go 'back' to either. As such, I am sure Britain will emerge stronger and better, but, next few years are likely to be uncertain.

                    (By safe, I do not mean I was an asylum seeker despite coming from a millitarised conflict area - I came here on a highly skilled visa and later naturalised. It has been a long journey)
