There will probably be a bit of naval gazing in the UK after the release of this report. from watching the talking heads this morning there at least seems to be a tiny shift in that they are saying you cant label people for wanting to talk about this.

Official study attacks attempts by successive governments to boost ethnic integration as ‘saris, samosas and steel drums for the already well-intentioned’

The study, which was commissioned by then prime minister David Cameron and Theresa May when she was home secretary, is likely to trigger controversy. Among the findings, Casey claims:

That the scale of immigration has felt too much for some local communities as the economy hit a downturn, and concerns about public services increased.
That while segregation has reduced over the population as a whole, in a number of local areas ethnic or migrant groups have become increasingly divided.
That fears of being labelled racist have prevented society from challenging sexist, misogynistic and patriarchal behaviour in some minority communities.

Everyone navel gazes.

We're certainly not immune from it here either... with many seemingly convinced that the world is constantly paying attention to what goes on in Ireland... whereas the reality is that it doesn't for the most part.

The Brits are in uber-navel gazing mode now though... especially since Brexit...

The levels of immigration into the UK have been relentless and significant for a long time now. Part of it is payback for the empire. Part of it is opening their doors to all and sundry EU citizens in 2004 along with Sweden and Ireland when everyone else imposed limits for a while... This was, in hindsight, probably an error... but then it was an error at national level in all 3 countries and not at EU level.

And of course part of immigration is down to having a robust economy that is attractive to immigrants who want to work and make something of themselves and who contribute far more than they take if stats are to be believed as opposed to the lazy arsed 'immigrants are taking our jobs' whinge...

When national governments claim everything positive as a win for them and everything negative as the EU ganging up on them... and you have that rhetoric for decades... it's little wonder the EU is unpopular...

The EU itself has been abysmal and horrendous at dealing with this... and at selling itself to EU citizens... so there's blame to go around imo... but the blame is nowhere near all down to the EU.

There are things the EU does... (like taking on the likes of Google or Facebook or phone companies with regard to roaming charges etc) which no individual country would succeed at.

The pity is that there is so much arrogance within the EU insitutions that they've never thought of promoting to EU citizens about all the good things the EU achieves...

It reminds me of the way the state deals with Travellers here, afraid of the word racist prevents them from dealing with barbaric culturally practices that a few engage in.
