UK: We'll break up Islamic ghettos


Muslim ghettos which have become no-go areas for whites must be broken up, Labour will declare today.

In a speech which is set to spark a storm Communities Secretary Hazel Blears will say there is a need to take a hard look at the impact of immigration on cities.......

She will tell the Left-wing Fabian Society: "No neighbourhood should be dominated by one group in ways which make others feel alienated or unsafe.

"We must ensure community cohesion is maintained. No one faith or ethnic group can dominate a locality to the exclusion of all others."

She went on to say there was "nothing wrong" with unthreatening cultural enclaves, such as traditional China Towns.

Ministers are considering cutting funding to community groups based on religion or race and thinking of stopping councils allocating housing along ethnic lines.
