Howard watches his words (Matt Cunningham, 14nov05, Herald Sun)
PRIME Minister John Howard last night refused to back a multicultural Australia saying he preferred a cohesive, integrated society.
Asked if he liked the word “multiculturalism”, Mr Howard said: “No, not particularly.
“Different people have different versions of what it means,” he said.
“I’m in favour of drawing people from everywhere and when they come to this country I’m in favour of them becoming Australian.”
Try to have many cultures and you’ll have none. Odd that only the Anglosphere grasps that.
