Labours New Anti Multi Culti Commission

Kelly in multi-culturalism plea

"Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly has called for a "new and honest debate" on the value of a multi-cultural society in Britain. Launching the Government's Commission on Integration and Cohesion, she warned there was a danger that communities were becoming increasingly isolated from each other. "We have moved from a period of uniform consensus on the value of multi-culturalism to one where we can encourage that debate by questioning whether it is encouraging separateness," she said at the launch in south London"

God the Left are slow. Re-read 'we have acknowledged multi culturalism is a fiasco and we arent sure how to dig ourselves out of the mess we have created. Does anyone have any ideas?'

It's not just the left though. Multi-culturalism was built and nurtured by successive governments. Political correctness took root in the late 80s and early 90s, under Tory governments. All the parties are in it up to their necks. That's why they have kept quiet for so long.

I see your point Steve although I think Ive seen more bending and fawning for this particular policy under Labour (as opposed to being 'PC') than at any other time in my life - in their 10 years in power the word multi culturalism has been a buzz word. I dont recall such a desire to point out our differences and nurture them under the Tories. When i was growing up in the 80s young muslim girls attended the catholic school i went to - none of us saw differences between us or even felt intimidated by religious differences. None of the girls felt inclined to sport burqas. In fact at one point in a school project involving us all we chose to debate womens rights or lack thereof in Saudi Arabia and the girls were opposed to the burqa. I cant see that happening nowadays. Yep, we all just got along. Labour have worked very hard at fostering a British apartheid. I think under the Tories it was softer - more a concern over political correctness which is part of the same package admittedly.
