          Living in a multicultural society like ours can be quite challenging, but also very rewarding – we experience so many different and exciting lifestyles, food, fashions, rituals.

          You are SO right, the UK is a multicultural society, a melting pot, and whether our ‘Far Right’, like it or not we have to learn to live together. 🙂 Enough politics from me 🙂
