Well well, the obvious has become to obvious to try hide from anymore. Among admissions of segregation and language difficulties, Miliband accepts they got it wrong on immigration. Of course he goes on to say how proud he is of the multi-enthic make up of British society. Of course he doesnt want to offend, so goes on to say rubbish like...."We are stronger for it - and I love Britain for it. It gives us access to new ideas, new perspectives, new energies,". But thats just a glib statement which means nothing.......as if he could of said some concrete possitives on large scale immigration.............he surely would have used them?
He has lots of negatives to draw on of course, but decides to go easy on himself by barely scratching the surface by admitting.....""But at the same time we know there is anxiety about immigration and what it means for our culture. The answer is not to sweep it under the carpet.In part, that means rejecting the idea that people can "live side by side in their own communities, respecting each other but living separate lives, protected from hatreds but never building a common bond - never learning to appreciate one another", he explains.
