Transcript:
"Culturally, I think Leicester is one of the most friendly – there’s a better word than ‘friendly’…most tolerant cities. I’ll tell you why again. Back in the 60s, 70s, Leicester had a lot of factories: knitwear, clothing, textiles. Now in those days, England was the biggest producer of cloth and fabric and everything. But they used to do night shifts so you’d work at nighttime. The machines would be working 24 hours. And one of the reasons why so many Indians came to England is that, before 1947, England used to rule India for over 100 years. So when they realized that the cotton industry was getting bigger and bigger, nobody wanted to work at 12-midnight. In the newspapers in India, they put an advert out saying ‘Job prospects in England. Come to England, there’ll be lots of job prospects, lots of opportunities to make money’."
