Ian Buruma on Dutch multiculturalism

In conjunction with the post below on Chris Caldwell's article on Dutch multiculturalism, check out Ian Buruma's New Yorker article on the crisis in Holland. Buruma, who is half Dutch, is one of the finest writers in the world on cultural difference, whether in Europe or Asia. Read it here.

Ian Buruma is a wan ker, and a prick, he is a complete m,oron, in one item he claims welsh people are chippy about upper class english people, just so he can claim the man who writes books claiming the holocaust didn't happen is a great man. The idea welsh people are chippy about upper class english men is insane, To have said this is like claiming americans are chippy about canadians, and irishmen chippy about germans, the idea is insane, we in wales have loads of upper class english people, i know loads of english upper class voiced people, this is juist the typical nazi moan that apparently the moast discriminated against people on earth are rich monarchs with loads of cash, and the most well treated are black disabled people being burned for being gay, and that those gays are all powerful
