Interesting that they would use a Shakespeare quote to try and combat the British sense of national identity. I hope one of these suicidal bureaucrats noticed the irony, and that the Islamic world has never produced a poet of that calibre but has likely killed quite a few. Mind you the quote is from Romeo and Juliet. Maybe it is appropriate. Star crossed fantasy love of multiculturalism gone horribly wrong and resulting in much death on all sides. This is the historical norm. People war because they are forced to mix as a rule. Good fences do indeed create good neighbors.

Almost half the country would back a new right-wing party that vowed to crack down on immigration and Islamic extremists, a shock poll reveals today.
They would also restrict the building of mosques and order the flag of St George or the Union Jack be flown on all public buildings.
The revelations will spark fresh fears of racial tension in Britain amid a new wave of support for extreme right-wing parties like the British National Party and the English Defence League.
Findings of the survey, the largest of its kind and involving 5,054 people, are in a major report called Fear and Hope – the New Politics of Identity, which examines views on race, immigration and multi-culturalism. Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband and campaigning left-wing MP Jon Cruddas will officially unveil the report, produced for the Searchlight Education Trust, tomorrow.
They will also launch Searchlight’s Together project to tackle extremism among white and Islamic communities with the slogan: “A plague on both their houses”. In one of the most revealing questions, pollsters Populus asked people if they would back a party that “wants to defend the English, create an English parliament, control immigration and challenge Islamic extremism”.
