    Lets start with the "trillions" invested in the UK. Total Market Cap of ALL public companies in the UK is just over 1.5 trillion GBP - accurate as of October 2005 - so much for that claim. "there are a number of minorities in parliament and the house of lords" - hmm let's check the official stats - admittedly a little out of date but http://www.parliament.uk/commons/lib/research/notes/snsg-01156.pdf - ethnic minorities make up 7% of population and 1.8% of Parliment, 4% of house of lords 2.5% of local councils. In London where ethnic minorities are estimated to be 29% but in the GLA there is exactly one GLA member making up 4% of the total. As for "courting ethnic minorities", the trend is downwards for their representation. No "active" discrimination - is this a joke? PS In Israel, arabs are also courted hence Peretz's appointment of Majdele and Sharon's lobbying on behalf of Azzam. Now what was that about people in glasshouses and stones... Look around you first.
