Asian women earn 28% less than white, says the Independent on Sunday. Thankfully they quoted go-getting women who wanted to break that glass ceiling instead of serial complainers such as Karen Chouhan of the 1990 Trust. The obvious point is still made – that dealing with “integration” isn’t a one way street.

In other news, Swedenâ€™s new integration and equality minister, an African-Swedish lady called Nyamko Sabuni, has “caused a storm” by arguing that: 1) All girls should be checked for evidence of female circumcision; 2) Arranged marriages should be criminalised; 3) Religious schools should receive no state funding; and 4) immigrants should learn Swedish and find a job.
What’s the storm about exactly? All of them, including (2) where I suspect the Times has conflated forced marriages with arranged marriages, sound sensible to me. Ah, but the hard-left is not happy. God forbid these SWP types start standing up for womens rights or for immigrants to play an equal role within their country.
By the way, I’ll be on a panel discussing the state of race relations tomorrow (Monday) morning on Asian Network at 10am.
