Robin Cook sobre sociedades plurais

It is not their purity that makes the British unique, but the sheer pluralism of their ancestry. […] The modern notion of national identity cannot be based on race and ethnicity, but must be based on shared ideals and aspirations. Some of the most successful countries in the modern world […] are immigrant societies. Their experience shows how cultural diversity, allied to a shared concept of equal citizenship, can be a source of enormous strength.
