I know the hon. Lady feels passionately about these issues. She has thought a lot about them, and I think she will have some good suggestions. I am always very happy to speak to her about this. However, I think it is a bit unfair to Dame Louise Casey to say that she does not recognise that this is a two-way street. Dame Louise has come up with some specific recommendations, and I think we should take them seriously. She recognises—I have discussed this with her in the past, and it is reflected in the report—that there is a role for everyone in all communities to play.

Casey review lacks appropriate context and is full of omissions and contradictions e.g. it pastes negativity without addressing why things are as they are – talks about racism without focusing why racism – talks about lack of integration without identifying the barriers; not really surprised considering equally flawed recent government initiatives like ‘Prevent’ or government supported ‘anti-hate crime campaign’ which tempts, through hand-outs, to deal with the effects without addressing the causes like right-wing media and politicians.

Not surprise to see collusive aspects of the debate, especially by those holding strategic cabinet positions!
