A whopping 95 percent of respondents to a BBC straw poll have said that they think multiculturalism in Britain is a failure. The poll was taken yesterday morning during the BBC’s Saturday Morning Live show, and asked “Is multiculturalism working?” Just 5 percent said “Yes”; 95 percent said “No”.
[O]n the show was the left-wing journalist Owen Jones, who extolled the virtues of interracial sex and claimed: “fortunately the actually scientific polling suggests that’s quite a pessimistic answer. Yes there are always tensions which we need to work on. We need to bring our communities together. But Britain has one of the highest levels of interracial relationships in the whole world. …”
However, growing evidence suggests that multiculturalism itself is responsible for increasing segregation in Britain. …
Analysis of the 2011 census figures showed that 45 percent of ethnic minority Britons live in areas where white Britons make up less than half of the population. This has led to some areas where there are large populations of Muslim immigrants being self-declared “Muslim zones”. In 2008, two Christian preachers were prevented from handing out extracts from the bible in Birmingham when a Muslim Community policeman told them “You can’t preach the Bible here, this is a Muslim area”. Last year a number of videos emerged on YouTube showing Sharia patrols in East London, as non-Muslims were told that they couldn’t drink in the streets as it was a Muslim area.
