A Part-Indian Conservative Prime Minister

They say that Barack Obama may become the first Afro-American President. (To be precise, his father was Kenyan and black, and his mother was from Kansas and white)

Still, how many decades is it going to take before one of the main political parties in this country chooses a leader who is at least partly of Asian ancestry?

What do you mean, The Tories did it 194 years ago?

"Liverpool's mother Amelia was the only daughter of William Watts, an associate of Clive in India who married a Eurasian wife. Amelia thus brought Charles Jenkinson a considerable dowry, and made her son around one eighth Indian, a fact which seems to have caused absolutely no stir in Britain"
