Davis attacks UK multiculturalism
Shadow Home Secretary David Davis is calling on the government to scrap its "outdated" policy of multiculturalism.
Allowing people of different cultures to settle without integrating let the "perverted values of suicide bombers" take root, he told the Daily Telegraph.

The leadership hopeful urged ministers to build a single nation and demand "respect for the British way of life".

The Muslim Council of Britain says there is no contradiction between multi-culturalism and integration.


Mr Davis said he agreed with Trevor Phillips, the chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, who last year said multiculturalism belonged to a different era.

Mr Phillips said all citizens should "assert a core of Britishness".

'Good and bad imams'

Mr Davis' remarks came after Home Office Minister Hazel Blears met Muslim leaders in Oldham in the first of a series of meetings to discuss concerns following the London bombings.

In an article for the Daily Telegraph, he said: "We must speak openly of what we expect of those who settle here," he said.

Non-Muslims had obligations to work for equal opportunities, accept the mainstream version of Islam as part of society, and reject racism.

But Muslims had to confront terrorism, not just condemn it.


Mr Davis said Muslims had to "root out" imams who failed to "understand the conventions of British society".

He said: "We must acknowledge there are good imams and bad imams."

He strongly criticised Birmingham Central Mosque chairman Mohammed Naseem for focusing his anger on the security services rather than the London bombers after one of the suspected terrorists was arrested in the city.

Mr Davis said: "Searching questions now have to be asked about what has been happening inside Britain's Muslim communities and how the perverted values of the suicide bomber have been allowed to take root.

"Britain has pursued a policy of multiculturalism - allowing people of different cultures to settle without expecting them to integrate into society.

"Often the authorities have seemed more concerned with encouraging distinctive identities than with promoting common cultural values of nationhood."

Human rights hurdles?

Mr Davis called for a new border control police force to secure Britain's "porous" borders and an urgent review of the process of granting British citizenship.

The government should allow evidence from phone-taps to be used in court, argued Mr Davis.

And ministers should consider scrapping the Human Rights Act if it stopped them from making Britain as safe as possible.

Inayat Bunglawala, from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), said multiculturalism was not at odds with integration.

"It is perfectly possible to be integrated in a wider British society while also holding onto your faith and values which you deem important," he said.

"For example, it may be part of the wider way of life to get drunk on a Friday night but this is not something our faith encourages."

Iraq effect

Mr Bunglawala said being a good Muslim was complementary to being a good British citizen.

The MCB supported integration but it should come in all sectors of life, he said, challenging Mr Davis to set an example by ensuring the Conservatives had a Muslim MP.

He added: "Mainstream Muslim scholars in the UK have been teaching the true interpretation of Islam and combating extremist views and interpretations.

"However, their task has not been helped by some of our government's actions.

"The war against Iraq, which David Davis and the Conservatives strongly supported, has undoubtedly helped make the extremist message more palatable to some Muslim youths."

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

i've been thinking similar things.. i never understood this drive for multiculturalism...

if people are here as refugees from something.. why do they try to recreate it, and not integrate with us?

Multiculturalism is a joke and does not work, but the left wingers have been trying to push it on us. Hopefully after what happened in London people will wake up.

WHEN YOU MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY, IT IS YOUR DUTY TO ADAPT TO THEIR CULTURE AND  CUSTOMS, NOT VICE VERSA.

i agree multiculturalism only leads to more divisions, native brits can feel descriminited against in their own country such as when certain traditions for example to do with christmas get muted in public so as not to offend other religions and other situations where political correctness goes too far, and when immigrants don't adapt to our way of life they isolate themselves and it just creates the whole us and them situation. there should be more enthesis on citizenship to all immigrants who want to settle in our country, otherwise they can always go home.

it also hasn't helped when you have a radical muslim cleric preaching hate claiming a 30 grand car on disability for a slight limp which is belived to be faked, when these stories come out it makes us look we were being laughed at, we open doors immigrants and they enjoy our hospitality then spit in our faces.
