In 1972 Idi Amin decided to throw as many foreigners as possible out of Uganda. The Asian population were especially despised. A lot of them had built up successful businesses which Amin decided would be better run by African tribesmen. The Asians were unceremoniously evicted, many at an hour's notice, leaving homes and belongings in Uganda with only their shirts on their backs. They came to Great Britain in mid winter where, to my horror, they were given a very unsympathetic greeting. This song was my protest to the treatment we gave them. Unfortunately, at the time, nobody seemed to listen.
