Herald Tribune: The New Cold War

It has been 40 years since Britain’s Enoch Powell made his famous “rivers of blood” speech warning about the social effects of immigration upon his land. Despite some serious riots along the way, Powell’s warning never came to pass. But today the chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Trevor Phillips, is warning of “the emergence of a kind of cold war in some parts of the country where very separate communities live side by side … with poor communications across racial lines.”

The multiculturalism in which Britain put its faith is under attack as having failed.

The rest.
