Seems to be Lib-Dem day on ATW but I couldn’t help but notice that Nick Clegg has suggested that we embrace multiculturalism by talking to extremist groups.
Nick Clegg broke with David Cameron over multiculturalism last night as he insisted the Government had to talk to extremist groups. The Deputy Prime Minister also risked controversy by claiming that households that are worried about immigration could be tipped into extremism by the economic downturn. Opening up a split at the top of government, Mr Clegg insisted multiculturalism should be the hallmark of an ‘open, confident society’.
It is surprising that Mr Clegg still salivates over the failed multiculti experiment and even worse thinks that extremism is best dealt with by talking to it. It is more surprising that such views sit at the heart of a Conservative led government.
