Multiculturalism failed?

Well he's a bit behind Angela Merkel, but it seems as if iDave has seen where the wind is blowing even if the leftists haven't grasped it yet.

Multiculturalism has failed in Britain - Cameron
Cameron, in a speech to a security conference in Munich, will argue that Britain and other European nations need to "wake up to what is happening in our countries" as well as tackling terrorism through military operations overseas.
"It is time to turn the page on the failed policies of the past," he will say, according to extracts from his speech released by his office.
"So first, instead of ignoring this extremist ideology, we -- as governments and societies -- have got to confront it, in all its forms."
His comments echo those made by German leader Angela Merkel last year and reflect a push by European governments to better integrate immigrants, given persistent domestic tensions between different cultures.
Yet in a sense it hasn't failed, the EDL were marching in Luton today and contained, Englishmen, Scotsmen, Irishmen, Welshmen, Dutchmen, Germans, Americans, Sikh's, Hindu's, Pakistani Christians, Jews (including a Jewish Rabbi), Gays, Lesbians, Transgenders and no doubt a good few others, all genders, all races, all nations and all creeds, even a few Muslims.

Multiculturalism in action
No violence, no trouble, just EDL.
Yes a single issue has them all stirred up and no doubt should the issue be resolved the EDL will go away yet it shows that a nation can be united and can get on together.
 The march appears to have attracted 4000+ EDL supporters (don't believe the BBC figures) and caused no trouble (as usual) from the EDL, though there were reports from Bury Park that the local Muslims had attacked the UAF supporters, though no official confirmation as yet.

UAF trying to appear to be bigger than they are in Luton today, note the sign :-D
Enter the EDL, I count at least 1500 and they aren't all on screen
Enter the UAF, I count about 300 taken at the same time the EDL entered the square.
Just for anonymous in the comments

So has multiculturalism failed? Yes and no, when it was forced upon us yes, when some groups appeared to be better treated than others, yes, when Labour used it as a vote rigging exercise, yes.
When people were simply left to get on with each other it works fine. We don't have problems in Chinatowns up and down the UK, we don't have problems with Hindu's and Sikhs trying to tell us how to live or adapt to them. Yes racism can be a problem, but hopefully we can get over that in time too, preferably without politicians getting involved legislating hate and inequality.
So iDave is band wagon jumping, but he really ought to know better, politicians were the reason multiculturalism failed and I'm sure his solution will fail too. The EDL forced you into this, ordinary people saying enough is enough iDave said said it was time to replace Britain's "passive tolerance" with an "active, muscular liberalism" to send a message that life in Britain revolves around certain key values such as freedom of speech, equal rights and the rule of law. In other words same old same old, he wants to legislate us into behaving.

My solutions far more simple, leave us alone, get us out of the EU, remove the Islamic threat (not Muslims) and we'll all get on fine.

Muslims and the islamist threat may not be the same thing but they are inseperable,you can't have one without the other, i don't see how you can remove the threat without removing its foundation and supporters club.

Just another move to neutre dissent. He will bloat himself up, promise that he will address the problem and the majority will go home thinking that there is nothing to worry about; the politicians will solve the whole issue.
Just trust honest Dave, like honest Tony he will make us all safer and richer.
One look at the difference between his election pledges and his subsequent actions should be enough for people to take to the streets.

Finally the police do their job properly instead of aiding and abetting the UAF and the Muslims to beat the shit out of the EDL - and the only obvious trouble came from the UAF side - again!
At least this time the MSM won't be able to blame the EDL - and all Sky News had to say on the matter was "eight people have been arrested" - those "people" must have been UAF/Muslims, then, because otherwise they would have been trumpeting that eight EDL members had been arrested - Sky is just as Left wing as the BBC!

hmmm funny how I can only see white people in the pictures you posted of the EDL. I wish I could have the same faith in Englands population as you appear to.

Don't believe Merkel for one second. A VERY short time after her attempt, a petition was removed from the Reichstag petition site, calling for the phrase "Scheiß Deutsch" to be treated with the same hysterical reaction of "RACIST" as "Scheiß Turk" is.

You can not believe a single word EITHER of them say.

@ Anonymous, the EDL draws support from all areas and races of the UK take a look here at some of their members on marches.
