I believe topics like this are deliberately inflammatory and I hope people see through it. There are tensions in some parts of the U.K, sure: fights, street battles, divided communities- it's a bigger problem oop north- I'd like to here any northerners comment on it though- is the situation getting better or worse?

However the common strand running through them is that they are not religious at all. They drink, a couple of them eat pork etc etc. For a religious Muslim to integrate then, is an impossibility. Only a liberal muslim (ie really a non-practising muslim) can integrate.

I can only relate a personal story. My daughter went to university in Manchester..sometime she had to return home through Rusholme which is a predominantly asian part of south manchester. It was like running the gauntlet for her and very intimidating because they would call her "white whore" and "white bitch" as she was walking through and especially as she had been brought up in a small village.
Now I am not racist but I would be swaying that way after the way she was treated and this is the problem. The divide is being created and they seem to want it that way.
