Quote of the day 1st June 2017

"It’s not some accident of genetics or history or our commitment to democracy that Britain is the only major European nation where the main centre-right party hasn’t included a burqa ban in its manifesto

– one reason why you can’t fairly claim that the Britain of 2017 is among "the most" racist of nations or anything like it.

That’s the result of campaigners, of improvements in the condition of Britain, and of politicians of the right and left."

(Stephen Bush, from an article in the New Statesman which you can read in full here.)
