An alternative perspective

British politicians, the media and us who view and comment on British politics often all approach the subject with the view of an insider. So embroiled in the minutiae of the various contests (electoral or otherwise) that we do not get the opportunity to step back and see how the system is viewed from outside.

Wan Saiful Wan Jan is standing for the Conservative Party in Limbury, North Luton. Due to his Malay roots he has gained coverage in The Star, the Malay Star that is. Saiful could be the first Malay Councillor, hence the excitement! The perspective on multicultural Britain, what Saiful will gain from standing and the comment of the reporter Choi Tuck Wo, I found fascinating.
