State multiculturalism has failed, says David Cameron, the Labour Party have created a divided and unequal society to garner vote caches

Dear All

One of the minor themes I have been blogging on for some time is that multiculturalism has failed.

The reason for the failure is that multiculturalism was a vehicle which promoted inequality.

Now, David Cameron has joined the growing number of politicians that have come to the conclusion that "state multiculturalism" is unworkable.

In Scotland, the Scottish Government is running a disastrous Labour Party policy called ‘One Scotland, Many Cultures.’

Unworkable and divisive!

What they should have promoted was ‘One Scotland, One Culture, Many Religions.’

In other words everyone is treated equal regardless of race, creed, colour or religion because this is a concept that the entire community can buy into.

This is a problem which has been running for sometime because of political parties chasing the minority vote, particularly the Muslim vote as part of a PC agenda.

These people were seen as potentially large ‘vote caches’.

David Cameron has now criticised "state multiculturalism" in his first speech as prime minister on radicalisation and the causes of terrorism.

A genuinely liberal country "believes in certain values and actively promotes them", Cameron has articulated.


"Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Democracy. The rule of law. Equal rights, regardless of race, sex or sexuality. It says to its citizens: This is what defines us as a society. To belong here is to believe these things."

Then he made the point that under the "doctrine of state multiculturalism", different cultures have been encouraged to live separate lives.

This is the fault of the Labour Party playing off different sections of society so that they could make the case that people had to be ‘managed!’

Simple, divide and rule.

As part of his speech he also signalled at a security conference in Germany that the UK needed a stronger national identity to prevent people turning to all kinds of extremism.

He also signalled a tougher stance on groups promoting Islamist extremism.

Cameron suggested there would be greater scrutiny of some Muslim groups which get public money but do little to tackle extremism.

Adding that Ministers should refuse to share platforms or engage with such groups, which should be denied access to public funds and barred from spreading their message in universities and prisons.

He argued:

"Frankly, we need a lot less of the passive tolerance of recent years and much more active, muscular liberalism."

What Cameron is articulating is what I have been blogging about for some time of what needs to happen in Scotland, the new policy should be:

‘One Scotland, One Culture, Many Religions.’

George Laird was right again.
