New Welsh Review 38, Autumn 1997


Editorial:


Multiculturalism and national loyalties (Robin Reeves)
"Multiculturalism is a divisive force. One cannot uphold two sets of ethics or be loyal to two nations, any more than a man can have two masters.
It perpetuates ethnic divisions because nationality is in the long term more about culture than ethnics. Youngsters of all races born here should be taught that British history is their history, or they will forever be foreigners holding British passports and this kingdom will become a Yugoslavia".
