Daily Mail reports, ‘It was billed as one of David Cameron’s most important speeches since entering Downing Street, with tough talk on tackling Islamic extremism and ‘the failures of integration’.  Now The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the Prime Minister’s controversial words on the alienation felt in some communities were shaped by a British Asian aide who admits struggling with his own ethnic identity in the past. Ameet Gill, born to parents who arrived in Britain as impoverished teenage migrants from rural India, has become one of Mr Cameron’s most trusted advisers since joining his team nine years ago. The 32-year-old former speechwriter was promoted to No 10’s director of strategy after the General Election. It gives him daily access to the Prime Minister, making him the most influential figure from an ethnic minority background in British politics. Gill’s background – a testimony to the success of so many immigrant families – ensures he stands out among the elite clique of Cameron advisers dubbed ‘the chumocracy’ […] his father Darshan, who had only rudimentary education, arrived in Britain to take a job in a car-parts factory. Darshan was joined a few years later by his wife Parminder, who went on to spend 35 years working in a cardboard-box factory. Her family had previously lost everything fleeing Pakistan in the violence that flared during the partition of India.  click here.
