Despite being the largest democracy in the world, there is evidence that the rights of women are sometimes subordinated in India. Also although the caste system was outlawed in the Indian Constitution in 1947, it is still very prevalent in India in 2014.

It is easy for the Times of India to mock racial relations in the US , but why is the TOI not promoting women’s human rights in India more aggressively?

Thoughts?

This is an excellent article from the Telegraph, highlighting comments from former UK, Prime Minister, John Major. Check it out!

‘Truly shocking’ that the private-school educated and affluent middle class still run Britain, says Sir John Major – Telegraph.

Personally, I support John Major’s views. In my mind, the UK Conservative Party needs to return to One Nation Conservatism. 

A UK Conservative Party run by the privileged for their wealthy minority chums will not gain enough popular support to win the the next election outright, in my view.

Any thoughts?
