Nigel Farage's Take On The State Of Multiculturalism In Britain
When a caller hailed the success of multiculturalism in the UK, Nigel Farage soon pointed out the areas in which it had failed.
Jack called LBC to hail the success of multiculturalism in the UK, but Nigel Farage was quick to point out the areas in which it had failed.
The pair were speaking after Nigel asked whether the Swedish Prime Minister was right to promise to "never go back" to the days of mass immigration.
Jack explained how immigration had benefited us closer to home, citing the building of mosques as one of the UK's multiculturual successes over recent years - which got the LBC presenter thinking.
"It depends what multiculturalism means," Nigel said. "If it means a diverse society of different people, the food's more varied and life is more - jolly that's great.
"If multiculturalism means actually different communities by religion or race being separated off from the rest of the population then surely Jack in that sense multiculturalism has been a failure, hasn't it?"
Jack responded: "It's the argument of theory versus practicality in that you can walk around looking to hear how many hundreds of different languages and that's the kind of multiculturalism I like."
Nigel finished: "One of my biggest criticisms has been that so much government policy and indeed taxpayers' money has been spent over the last four decades actually actively encouraging new groups of people who come to this country to live separately from the rest of us and that has been a disaster."
