What is the West Indian population in Britain today?
Population and geography The total population of the West Indies Federation was between 3 and 4 million people, with the majority being of black West African descent. Minorities included Indians from the subcontinent (called East Indians), Europeans, Chinese, and Caribs. There was also a large population of mixed descent (mainly mulattos, but also Afro-Indian, Euro-Indian and mixed-Chinese). In terms of religion, most of the population was Protestant, with significant numbers of Catholics and some Hindus and Muslims (both almost exclusively from the East Indian population). The West Indies Federation (or just West Indies) consisted of around 24 main inhabited islands and approximately 220-230 minor offshore islands, islets and cays (some inhabited, some uninhabited). The largest island was Jamaica, located in the far northwest of the Federation. To the southeast lay the second largest island, Trinidad, followed by Barbados (in terms of population), located at the eastern extremity of the Federation.

Answer . In parts of India, women's rights matter little; and in other parts of India, women's rights have improved.. Answer (expanded version) . Because of globalization and a larger percentage of women entering the workforce, the perceived value of the woman has extended beyond the realms o…f homemaker, wife and mother. This has caused a dramatic and positive shift in the area of women's rights: culturally and legally. . Although old and discriminatory ways are practiced in small villages where education and forward-progress are not considered as important as surviving daily life, most of India (especially the metropolitan areas) treat women fairly and with respect. As a byline, The Indian government is involved and trying to improve matters. . ( Full Answer )
Britain has been made by a number of remarkable events. The Ice Ages which shaped our island landscape. Invasions by the Danes, and Romans. The Christian missionaries. The Battle of Hastings in 1066 which brought with Norman feudal rule. Magna Carta and Law. The Armada. The Tudors. The English Civil… War. Cromell and Parliament. The Act of Union. Coal and the Industrial Revolution. The First World War. The Second World War. North Sea Oil. The EU.. If I had to choose one thing that has shaped modern Britain, I'd say King Alfred's decision to unite England and publish the bible in English (Anglo saxon) which paved the way for a strong and united kingdom which would become a major world power in the succeeding centuries and a language which would become the most spoken language in the world.. For my money, he's the man who put the Great in Great Britain. ( Full Answer )
Britain is primarily governed by the House of Commons. This is made up of 650 MPs (members of parliament) elected from 650 constituencies of varying sizes. Any law passed by the house of commons is ratified by the house of Lords and most bills can be created in either house. The parliament act howev…er allows the commons to pass bills to royal assent without the House of Lords. The House of Lord is made up of 750 lords 600 keep there seats for life there are 92 hereditary Lords none are elected. The Prime Minister and members of the Cabinet are almost always from the Commons but can be from the House of Lords. Before any bill is made law in Britain it must pass through both houses of parliament and then go for royal assent where the Current Sovereign makes it law. The last time a bill was refused was by Queen Anne in 1707. To add confusion some parts of Britain have regional assemblies. This in Britain is called devolution. Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland have regional assemblies that are elected by the people of that country. (The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a proper country. England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland are also still known as countries even though they are all governed as a single nation.) Regional assemblies act as a limited form of government for three of the four countries in the union. England has no regional government causing an unbalance in the four regions. In Scotland university is free and paid for by the Scottish parliament in England most people have to pay personally for the same education. The Scottish parliament has some power over law and it was the Scottish parliament that released the Lockerbie Bomber not the British parliament. This caused huge confusion in the United States with people condemning the whole of Britain for the act of one regional government. Today then Britain is governed by parliament if you live in England and also by a regional assembly if you live in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. ( Full Answer )
the Parliament make laws the queen then either agrees or disagrees with that law then the law is set or not.

Greater India (which included modern day India, Pakistan,Bangladesh, Nepal, Burma, Bhutan & Sri Lanka) was part of theBritish empire and at the end of the second world war Great Britainhad huge labour shortages, so they invited people from the formercolonies to come and fill the huge holes in the wo…rkforce. Therewas a lot of poverty in the newly formed states of India andPakistan, so naturally a fair number of people took up the offer tocome and work in the UK. ( Full Answer )

Approximately 7-8 million Mayan peoples, as of 2010, live throughout Guatemala and Belize, as well as in southern Mexico, specifically in the states of Chiapas, Yucatan, Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Tabasco. Mayan is word that refers to the majority of these peoples, like an ethnic label. However t…his ethnic group is further divided into cultural, ethnic, and linguistic ethnic groups the majority of which have unique proper names, such as K'iche, Jacaltec, Mam, Cakchiquel, Chontal, Tzeltal, Tzotzil. Mayan is not really used as a label of ethnicity because of this ethnic diversity that spans across three nation-states. There are about 28-32 Mayan languages (the number depends on which linguist you consult). These form the Mayan language family. Mayan is used to refer to the languages just as Latin or Romance is used to refer to the grouping of languages that share a common historical origin. However, just because Italian and French are Romance languages, we dont say that someone speaks Romance or Latin; she or he speaks Italian or French or some other language. All of the languages in the Mayan family similarly have their own proper name correspond to the ethnic labels noted above. Only one of these languages which is called Maya (without an "n"); this is the Mayan language that is spoken in Yucatan peninsula. The idea that "There are no more Mayans living today" is a false idea creating through European colonialism and colonization of the Americas. Military conquest destroyed the cities of the peoples that lived in the Americas and converted these to abandoned ruins or were buried under new colonial cities. As part of the political domination of Indian groups, Europeans (British, French, Spaniards, and Portuguese) spread the idea that these cities created by people who were no longer living or alive. This was a way to break the political will and historical memory of once having been an independent culture, society, and political state. The idea -- that there are no Mayans living today -- is completely false and wrong. This erroneous misconception is promoted by many educational films, documentary films, archaeology films, and the tourism industry under the idea of "Mystery" -- that the Maya are a mysterious culture and civilization. In actuality, the Mayans by definition ONLY live "today"!!! That is, they are the descendents living "today" in the contemporary period following the end of colonialism (1821). They are the descendents of the Maya, which is the name of the given to the groups of people that lived BEFORE the European colonization of the Americas! Maya (used both for singular and plural) are the people known as the creators of the precolumbian Maya civilization. We do not actually know the name of the ethnic-linguistic and cultural groups that they themselves used to refer to themselves and their neighbors. Thus, precolumbian Maya got their name from the Maya who live in Yucatan peninsula who the Spaniards encountered in 1517. ( Full Answer )

Britain Is No Racist As It Was Before Because: Before there was segregation between whites and 'colored' people. there was racial discrimination. Many black people were not allowed to use public uses or go to restaurants, if they were allowed it would have been segregated (separated). So as you can… see the laws have changed through the civil rights movement and more. Britain is much less racist than before but there are many people in Britain today who are racist towards different races and cultures. For Example: Racism or Discrimination towards religion.

Shane West is currently on a European Tour with the iconic 70's punk band The Germs . He filled the spot of their original lead singer (Darby Crash) who had committed suicide on December 7, 1980. Shane West played the role of Darby in the 2007 biopic What We Do Is Secret . When asked in a 2008 inte…rview, "Whose idea was it to relaunch the Germs with you in it?" Shane replied, "I don't know whose idea it was, but -- I mean, it might've been just a collective idea, but... had a lotta fun just doing it. And Don and Lorna and Pat had a lotta fun being on set and watching the musical performances. When we ran out of financing the first time, we had a wrap party where Pat made the Baby Germs perform. We played four or five songs and then the real Germs got onstage (which they hadn't done in twenty-five years) to play.. umm.. about four more songs with me singing. It was a great reaction. They decided to do a couple of shows with me as the singer and they went really well... and then... they just had so much fun doing it. We just kind of kept playing and been doing it for the last couple years." ( Full Answer )

The word "Taino" means "good" or "noble" and it's rightfully so because no Spaniard ever saw these Indians fighting among themselves. They were a peaceful and generous people. At the end of the fifteenth century, they were divided into five tribes and on the verge of modern civilization and a centra…lized government. Their numbers have been estimated to be about 250,000 at that time. "Discovered" by Columbus in 1492, they taught him the ways of farming such crops as yucca and corn. Columbus stayed for only a year though, and when he left there were 39 Spaniards that remained behind with hopes of starting a settlement. However, fights began to break out among the Spaniards. They took on three or four Indian wives each, forcibly. After several months, the Tainos grew tired of the harsh treatment. Their "cacique" (chief) Coronabo attacked the settlement and killed the remaining Spaniards. Columbus returned the following spring and was shocked to find the settlement empty and burned. The new governor Nicholas de Ovando decided to take revenge. He arranged for Anacoana, the Indian princess-widow of Coronabo, to cook a meal for over 80 Indian caciques. However, when the chiefs had gathered within the dining hall preparing to feast, the Spaniards burned the place to the ground. Those who did not perish in the fire were later tortured to death. Thus began a tense relationship between the two peoples. It was at about this same time when the Indians were forced to work on the Spanish plantations. Some chose to abandon their villages and burn their crops, hoping to escape the torture. But their intentions backfired, and they were left without shelter and food. Mass suicide broke out, and the remaining Indian population, several years later, perished due to smallpox. Columbus and the Spaniards had all but wiped out the entire Taino population.

Since the world is a sphere (shaped like a ball), it has no sides, and no west or east. By convention, however, a line has been defined that's called the Prime Meridian. It joins the north and south pole and passes through a carefully defined point between them. Half of the Earth to the east …of the line is the Eastern Hemisphere, and the other half is the Western Hemisphere. Now, to answer your question: That special point that the Prime Meridian passes through is in Greenwich, a suburb of London, England, Britain, UK. So the most correct, technical answer to the question is that there are parts of Britain on each side of the line, so Britain is in both the eastern and western hemispheres. ( Full Answer )
Less and less British. The Indians try to forget as much as possible their colonization by the British. One of the first steps was to change the names of cities to the old names. Example: Bombay is again Mumba. Madras is again Chennai. But it will be difficult, if not impossible to do so.
