This sums my situation up pretty well too, although I was born in the early 80s, grew up in a very "English" area of the East Midlands. It was only during my university years in Sheffield that I became aware of how different things were becoming. Throughout my working life I have lived in very multicultural towns and cities. I have found the whole experience to be quite disheartening. I don't hold any ill will towards people, however the rate of change and inability of certain cultures to adapt, modernise, and integrate is of great concern to me.
I think that this signifies a deliberate effort by the establishment to create a divided society, which is polarised to the extent that it is no longer capable of holding those who rule it to account.
