NRI banker sets up new political party in Britain

INITIAhajisinghHajinder Singh, 38, a corporate banker and former UK Independence Party candidate for Birmingham’s Perry Barr constituency, has set up his own political party called the Open Borders Party and calls for Britain to throw open its borders, as he disagrees with his former Euro-sceptic party’s immigration policy.

Singh said he is a libertarian and wants an open border as long as new arrivals do not have a criminal record or contagious disease, pay an entry fee, are denied state benefits, and pay higher tax rates for some years. He believes the policy would bring huge economic benefits, boosting the economy with new labour and saving the taxpayer a fortune spent trying to keep migrants out.

Singh plans to contest the next elections and hopes to attract like-minded people to back him and join his party.
