David Davis on ‘national esprit de corps’

“We are proud to be a famously tolerant country. When people arrive in the UK the general response is one of welcome, certainly where those arrivals embrace our national values of freedom under the law and mutual tolerance.  Newcomers can be successfully absorbed, but it does take time to build this national ‘esprit de corps’.  The scale of immigration means that integration doesn’t happen.  Or it doesn’t happen fast enough.  And without it, community cohesion suffers.   And that feeds the double headed monster of extremism and intolerance.”
