    You keep going on about low-skilled immigrants but you are not mentioning where you are getting your information from. Are you just one of those bitter ones about polish immigration and decide to put all immigrants in the same bag? Also, don't know if you realise there are many british people living abroad whom are 'low-skilled, but that doesn't mean every brit is the same. Plus, immigration has existed since forever and I don't see how stopping immigration will improve anything, there is a big population of elderly whom the younger generations have to support and this will be the same for the next 20 years or so. Don't place the blame solely to the immigrants. In fact, don't blame the citizens who do their best to maintain a living.

    Pretty certain the cultural differences between Wales and Scotland aren't as large as Pakistan/Romania/Somalia and England......
    The cultural differences between Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland are similarly small, yet they've caused far more trouble than plenty of supposedly much wider cultural differences.

    That's not a benefit to the host culture. That's a benefit to other people. You need to re-read the question. Also, 'accepting' is subjunctive and rather patronizing.
    Actually it would be an advantage of multi culturalism if it was true. However I think it does the exact opposite; it increases racism.

    To me, multiculturalism conjures images of:
    -Ghettos in London
    -Gun crime
    -Knife crime
    -Pick-pocketing
    These existed before England became multicultural. If you mean that there is more of it now, I'd be more inclined to attribute that the doubling of global population in the past 60 years.

    To me, multiculturalism conjures images of:
    -Increasing the demand for housing
    -Increasing the demand for school places
    -Increasing the demand for hospitals
    This is because of an increase in population, not multiculturalism per se. This would have happened if there was an equal increase in population of people who are ethnically British.

    To me, multiculturalism conjures images of:
    -Anti-terror raids
    Terror attacks are caused by terrorists, not 'people of different cultures'. The Irish have a very similar culture to us, but it was not that long ago that the IRA were engaging in terrorist attacks. Stop confusing the two.

    To me, multiculturalism conjures images of:
    -10 people living in a shed in Slough,
    Wow, they must be really poor; the local housing system has really failed them. I fail to see what this has to do with multiculturalism though. 10 poor ethnically British people could find themselves in the same situation. This has nothing to do with multiculturalism, just poverty and lack of resources to help, which as I have already said can be attributed to population increases in recent decades.

    NB replies of "we lack certain skills" will be met with laughs. The majority of immigrants are low-skilled, doing jobs any British person could do.
    ...but that they don't do. Looking at the current immigration policy, permanent residence is only given to people that are skilled workers and professionals that can and will carry their weight in society. The government will work in the interests of the economy. Jobs require skilled workers; if you cannot recruit the workers at home due to lack of skills, or it is cheaper to give the work to foreigners, that is what has, and will be encouraged.

    Low-skilled immigrants earning min-wage and you think they improve trade and foreign investment?

    Oh my the desperation.......
    Not all immigrants work low-wage jobs and not all Britons work high-wage jobs.

    So, does multiculturalism actually have any advantages?

    NB replies of "we lack certain skills" will be met with laughs. The majority of immigrants are low-skilled, doing jobs any British person could do.

    NB2 replies of "British people don't want to do those jobs" will be met with "then remove their benefits".

    NB3 replies of "its great to experience different cultures" will be met with "thats what a gap year and holidays are for". You don't invite a Lion in your home if you're interested in wild animals- you visit a Zoo!
    Multiculturalism is good because if we all blend together into one race, it avoids things like nationalism which can lead to another Holocaust and also it contains many Holocaust deniers.

    Blending together tends to reduce the number of Holocaust deniers. It's also good because it encourages One World Government / Shadow Government organisations like the United Nations.so we can save the world from Global Warming.

    There is a further benefits, in that if we import exotic species then it means that there is less chance of people seeing Jewish people as different, therefore less chance of another Holocaust. Also George Galloway said that people who use zoo analogies in this debate are Nazis. Then there is a further argument that race is just a social construct. And a social construct that leads to the Holocaust. White people especially can't be trusted with this because of the Holocaust even though they are not white but just believe they are because of the social construct.

    What would be better would be to adopt an ideology that makes everyone equal and deals with people who don't want everyone to be equal. We don't need to worry how it deals with these people because it's for the greater good. You would start with people who had bad thoughts in their head and attempt to reeducate them before attempting harsher measures.

    How many marks out of 10 for articulating the subconscious construct which is the lens though many people view this issue as this is what eventually came out when discussing the issue in depth with a number of people.

    Rather than diversity, multiculturalism leads to homogenisation. Discuss.

    I'd just get rid of the chavs/native working class people tbh. Where I work (in a kitchen) all the immigrants behave with far more dignity than the local 'Meaders'. Always been a shock to me how well educated some of them (esp. Indians) are.

    Most earn min wage- so all those hundreds of thousands working in Costa Coffee, or picking strawberries are not representing Britain on the global stage.

    Oh btw, we've been an international trading nation for hundreds of years- don't see why we suddenly need immigration to continue.....

    NO, you are referring to the current non-EU immigration policy........

    I personally know Eastern European families of 20 who contribute nothing and have the rent on multiple houses (same family) paid for by the taxpayer. Its about £2,000 a month to house the family AND they have caused all sorts of social problems. So you have the cost of police etc etc- for what benefit? NOTHING.
