    LibLabCon have condemned Nigel Farage for attacking multiculturalism and Islam after the Paris attack,

    'There is a very strong argument that says that what happened in Paris today is a result - and we've seen it in London too - is a result I'm afraid of now having a fifth column living within these countries. We've got people living in these countries, holding our passports, who hate us.Luckily their numbers are very, very small but it does make one question the whole really gross attempt at encouraged division within society that we have had in the past few decades in the name of multiculturalism.'

    Yesterday LibLabCon were endlessly going on about the importance of free speech & yet today they are attacking Nigel Farage for expressing his opinion on the issue. So it appears that free speech does not apply to anyone who wants to criticise multiculturalism

    I have long thought multiculturalism is great in theory but in practice it brings numerous problems. We can all see the different foods available to use, the different sports played in Britain, the different families influencing neighborhoods, and the more worldly the average Briton has become. This is the good side of immigration and multiculturalism; no one would deny this.

    However, choosing not to focus on integration or not having a common factor among people, usually the common factor is language, has led to segregation with fighting between ethnic gangs, and ethnic groups live in different neighborhoods. The highest levels of segregation recorded in the UK are those between Indians and Pakistanis in towns in the north of England. Those towns also exhibit a higher degree of segregation between blacks and Asians than between whites and blacks. This suggests that the explanation for the division is not white racism, but rather the lack of a common culture that would allow different groups to share anything significant. The isolation of communities helps to perpetuate beliefs and practices that are opposed to British values. British values being tolerance, equality between males and females, recognising the importance of equality before the law, or even the primacy of democratic elections as the way of deciding who should govern. For topical examples, we've have Sharia law unofficially declared in certain cities, unofficial Islamic courts, active discrimination against women, and Islamic extremism in schools which leads to individuals committing the atrocities we saw in Paris.

    It is easy to forget about the negative aspect to multiculturalism, or to brush them aside, but they are real problems leading to groups in Britain who dedicate themselves to trying to destroy the British way of life, are not willing to integrate, or are not interested. There needs to be a bigger focus on integration. I accept all arguments concerning the good majority but as Brigitte Gabriel stated, the "silent majority is irrelevant." 12 innocent people have recently died and we need to focus on the cause of their deaths and find ways to prevent future deaths. Criticising their actions does nothing.

    If a major Islamist terrorist attack isn't the time to discuss Islamist terror, then when is the right time?

    Maybe he could have waited just a bit, but the aftermath of a tragedy is a good time to discuss the causes and what can be done to prevent something happening again.

    e.g. In the aftermath of school shootings the American gun lobby opposes even minor restrictions and claim their opponents are politicising the deaths of schoolchildren by calling for any restrictions. Which is just stupid.

    Has Cameron banned Farage from speaking? Have any of the other leaders proposed doing so? If no, then where is Farage's right to free speech being violated? Why shouldn't the leaders of the other parties, or anyone else for that matter have the freedom to critise Farage?

    Clegg et al are free to condemn farage just as farage is free to say whatever he wants. Not really a big deal.

    Although I do think there is obviously a problem with Islamism in Europe, fair play to the French Muslim council who condemned the killers to hell,

    It should also be noted that one of the policemen killed was a Muslim, who dies defending free speech and the right of other to say things that he himself probably disliked. I think Clegg was spot on the LBC show.

    I also found it very telling that Britain First used the story to try and flog their merchandise. C•••s .

    I guess he was a 'bad Muslim', and was probably going to Hell anyway.
