    If integration is taking off your hijab/drinking/partying/having sex with a lot of people then you're a moron, there are different ways to enjoy life. Moron
    there is more to british culture than the above - it seems most muslims are brainwashed to only have that simplistic viewpoint opinion (amoung other things)

    People from cultures that are similar to the UK will integrate more easily, it's quite simple really. Also, people from cultures with a general strong work ethic e.g. Japan would integrate quite easily, especially since Japan isn't quite religious even though the Japanese culture is very different.

    muslims are ( to some extent 0 similar to you christians in culture - in as much tthat islam is essentialy the same faith as christianity and shares much of its cultural traditions. however religious groups who have far less in common with abrahmic fiath have come to uk and integrated far better.

    To OP - there are various cultures that have integrated far better than the two you have mentioned - they didnt necessarrily come to the uk with piles of cash or even with the perfect grasp of english, but they came with the mindset to work hard , get on with their neighbourand do well. i sincerly think that original muslim migrants of 40+ years ago came with that same advanced mindset but it is their children and grandchildren that have regressed backward into a more what we word term in asian community ' villager mindset' where they turn their back on the things their parents came here for and now listen to the doctrine of the village idiots - in this case the islamist sheikhs, emirs and youtube preachers that have their ear. Intellect and logic goes out the window

    I think the issue is more mass immigration of specific groups of poorer people, in turn leading to them not integrating properly into the community and leading to ghettos being formed.

    Political and economic pressures, essentially. Ethnic tensions and polarisation get ratcheted up when there's political capital to be made from doing so.
    So the Muslim child rape gangs,Muslim suicide bombers,Muslims murdering British soldiers on the capital's streets..............not connected to tensions between British Muslims and the rest of us?

    Are you sure?

    Why are some ethnic groups more integrated than others?
    Because they bothered to integrate more than others

    You're not seeing the wood for the trees here. I'm talking about wide-reaching general themes and you're talking about specific cases and incidents.

    So, its just coincidence that we never have this conversation about non-Muslims living in the UK who originate from the Indian sub-continent?

    Money. Immigrants to this country are forced into ghettos / working class council estates where they compete for the same jobs as the native British. As the native British quite rightly believe they should get the job, it causes conflict. If both groups had money, they would disperse from the ghettos and assimilate at a superficial level, by which I mean they would be able to talk and hold a conversation with other ethnicities without being threatened, intimidated and violated by them. If you're poor, it's natural to think everyone is against you, and the fact that the immigrants are often non-white / can't speak English means they are blamed and are at the receiving end of this hate.

    Before immigration was ever an issue, so going back about 30 years or so, the U.K. was already a divided country. English people hated and were hated by the Scottish, Welsh and the Irish. A person living in say London was seen as a foreigner by a Welsh farmer etc. Lots of little isolated communities in 4 distinct countries forming the UK resulted in the fragmentation of a collective national identity. This meant that when the immigrants started coming in their droves, the natives did not stand together as one collective peoples and protest, the result of which is the atomisation of today's lifestyle i.e. Every man for himself, loss of community, break up of culture etc.
