Quote of the Week

Ed West, on the news that the US are running 'anti-extremist' operations in the UK, and our obligation to celebrate diversity :

According to the local council, “Leicester has a reputation for welcoming and celebrating diversity” and “the residents of Leicester recognise that the city is both multi-ethnic, multi-cultural and multi-faith”. The latter is a tellingly un-enthusiastic phrase. I recognise that I’m not going to ever be confused for Johnny Depp or afford a house in Hampstead, but I wouldn’t “celebrate” the fact, unless you call smashing an empty whisky bottle across the room while listening to Joy Division at 2 in the morning “celebrating”.

What is going on here? In France, the US is running a campaign to encourage "diversity".
