A British Subject : How to Make It as an Immigrant in the Best Country in the World Hardback
by Dolar Popat
FORWEWORD by David CameronFleeing Idi Amin's regime, seventeen year-old Ugandan Indian immigrant Dolar Popat landed at Heathrow in 1971 with just GBP10 and a cardboard suitcase to his name - but with everything to prove. Fuelled by a tenacious entrepreneurial spirit, a sharp talent for finance and an unparalleled drive for success, Popat worked relentlessly to pay his gratitude to the country that offered him a fresh start: Great Britain.
With this same passion, he tells the incredible story of his journey from Wimpy Bar waiter to business magnate to member of the House of Lords. Despite battling prejudice, he found allies in the Conservative Party and, with guidance from David Cameron and his spiritual leader, Morari Bapu, has become one of the most influential people in commerce and politics today.
Full of life lessons and business wisdom, A British Subject is a timely testament to the importance of integration in Britain. A love letter to his adopted country, this is the inspirational tale of how the barefoot boy from the streets of Tororo now treads the corridors of Parliament.
