IWCA & Multi-culturalism

Those of is who view the Independent Working Class Association (IWCA) as one of the few positive developments on the political scene in the UK might have been alarmed by the recent silence from them (or at least as evidenced by their web site). However the Oxford Blackbird Leys site of the IWCA has recently been updated with a number of pieces from the Leys Independent, including an article by Stuart Craft on multi-culturalism.

Not only does Craft attack multi-culturalism as encouraging racial/religious segration and difference, he also points out that it's the workling classes (of all backgrounds) who stand to lose most.

Predictably the IWCA are attacked as being racist, but the fact is that it's the politics of multi-culturalism that are racist.
