    Feck they have over a billion.

    Oh and that's one of the reasons I voted Remain.

    If the British govt does this it will be a fatal mistake. Well, as they say, you reap what you sow

    Same here.

    And all the Indians I worked with at Accenture voted Brexit.

    So the Indians you worked with were actually British. They either had ancestral passports, where born here -moved back to India to be educated and moved here again - , or just moved over as adults and nationalised hence they haven't lost their accents.

    Maybe you should talk to people nicely and with interest - food is always a good starting point as they love (laughing) at non-Indian people trying to cook their cuisine - so you can find out their backgrounds.
