Never a Truer Word Said.

UK 'sleepwalking' to segregation

British society is "sleepwalking" its way into racial segregation, according to the UK's race equality chief. Trevor Phillips, head of the Commission for Racial equality, is to give a speech warning some areas of the UK are turning into "fully-fledged ghettos".

He warns of divisions similar to those seen in hurricane-hit New Orleans.

But a member of the Liberal Democrats' Muslim Forum, Mohammed Shafiq, said multi-culturalism was a success and called for Mr Phillips to resign.
From whose perspective, Mohammed? Yours, of course, which sees the creation of a Muslim state within a state as being a more than ideal outcome. The fact is, we don’t agree, and for pretty obvious reasons.

Speaking at the Lib Dems party conference, Mr Shafiq said Mr Phillips' comments were "inflammatory and offensive".
I’m sick to death of language like this. In what way is it 'inflammatory and offensive' to suggest that we risk a divided society, when the evidence of that very thing is all about us? And the immediate fact of the London bombers’ ethnic origins plays no small part in that evidence. A case in point, actually. Their actions spoke louder than words like this ever could. England may have been their home, but it was not their Nation.

That’s precisely why they happily took to blowing parts of it and its people to bits.

Mr Phillips will argue schools are becoming more exclusive and some universities are becoming "colour-coded", according to excerpts leaked to newspapers earlier this week.
He’s right.

He will voice his fears of a "New Orleans-style Britain of passively coexisting ethnic and religious communities, eyeing each other over the fences of our differences".
He’s right again.

The Sunday Times said he will suggest new measures to help to encourage integration - which could include forcing "white" schools to take larger numbers of ethnic minorities.
Which, while the multi-culti school of shrieking, screaming, and bullying still has its voice, will be doomed to failure, I’m afraid.

He will admit that his message is "bleak", but sees Hurricane Katrina as a warning to Britain to avoid complacently believing that it has an integrated society.
Hurricane Katrina? What about the bombing of London? Far more immediately relevant, I’d suggest.

"The fact is we are a society which, almost without noticing it, is becoming more divided by race and religion," he will tell Manchester Council for Community Relations.
And, I predict, they will do precisely nothing.
