The Guardian today has run an interview with Oona King, former MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, in which she says that multiculturalism in the east London is failing. She cites faith schools and poor housing policies as being at the root of discontent bred between communities in her former borough. In doing so, she defends Margaret Hodge, the MP for Barking who provoked debate a couple of weeks ago when she claimed that British natives should in some cases be given preference over recent immigrants when it comes to housing allocation.
