I was again debating immigration with Andrew Green of anti-immigration lobby group Migrationwatch on Nightwaves, BBC 3’s flagship culture and ideas show last night.

Green contends that he has nothing against future or existing
immigrants, but argues in the same breath that they are diluting
"traditional British culture". Unfortunately, time ran out before I got
a chance to ask him this question: does he think curry houses,
R&B music or writers like Zadie Smith are a welcome addition to
British culture or not? Does he think they are British at all? They certainly aren’t part of that mythical
monolith known as "traditional British culture" that he harks back to. Listen here
