Replying to @JolyonMaugham
By implying there is a problem with how immigrants behave, but without engaging with the evidential base for that implied assertion, Blair is engaging in, and validating, the anti-immigrant rhetoric of the Far Right. His is bigotry dressed for dinner. /Ends

You can read the full report here. And it talks of the "fear" (20 usages) or "anxiety" (9 usages) or perception (10 usages) of recipient communities without ever grappling with whether they are justified. /2

I wonder what "rules, laws and norms of our society" Tony Blair thinks immigrants don't accept? Because this language errects or buttresses the Far Right notion that there is a real problem with how immigrants in our communities act. /1

Yeah - was certainly not a criticism. It was a genuine wish for evidence.

Horrible news for Sri Lanka. The cycle of violence will not solve the problems of the country, the peace process is valuable and worth saving.

“We have here, a recognition that national identity is not a territorial or genetic imperative, and is not necessarily a single thing. What we did not imagine 20 years ago was that the pursuit of a pure identity would return as a governing project – not in NI, but in England.”

If you're a lawyer, please read this thread and ask, 'am I doing enough to address society's wrongs'?

Politicians & successive governments across the world have failed to rise to the challenge of climate change. Never has the penalty for short-termism been so high - all credit to for its commitment to peaceful, imaginative mass protest

I went for "sprinting" but only to the items within reaching distance of the large supermarket.
