The UK’sÂ Labour Party wants Christmas “downgraded”. In an article in today’s Daily Mail a Labour Party think tank report says that Christmas should be downgraded in favor of festivals from other religions to improve race relations.
Citing that rural England remains “a largely white place” the report declares that multiculturalism demands equal time for other religious celebrations besides Christmas.
The report, written by IPPR advisers Ben Rogers and Rick Muir, calls on Ministers to launch an “urgent and upfront campaign” promoting a “multicultural understanding of Britishness”.
“Multiculturalism can be shown to provide for a fairer and more liberal society and does not necessarily lead to social division and community conflict, as its critics have claimed,” it says.
