How does Britain’s cosmopolitan make-up, with its range of communities and diverse cultural values, affect political, legal and other statutory frameworks and policies? To what extent should these different values and beliefs within Britain’s diverse population – the product of centuries of immigration – be taken into account in terms of governance? What are the fundamental principles of ‘Britishness’ and should they always be upheld?
