Why are the British so opposed to immigration? After the confident, multicultural image projected to the world at the Olympics why is public opinion so hostile to more immigration, and so deeply divided over the benefits of past migrations? We have been led to believe that celebrating and promoting diversity will bring us all together. However, in this ground-breaking analysis, Telegraph journalist Ed West finds that while diversity has become an official virtue to be officially celebrated, it is the cause of problems rather than the cure. It has led to lower levels of trust, higher inequality, the emergence of an economically sidelined urban poor and the return of sectarianism. Diversity has been trumpeted by Westminster through successive governments, ignoring the growing dissenting voices of the general public. Whatever fresh immigration policies might arise, the conflicts and clashes which are causing the word immigration to everyone's lips can't be combated until it is possible to have open and reasoned debate about our own culture.
