Having said this, France is holding a similar discourse, but Britain used to be held as an example in Europe of tolerance, open-mindedness, and yes, political correctness whose detractors must now breathe a sigh of relief.
I never had the impression that Britain was an example for Europe in terms of integration. Maybe Britain saw things that way, and the pundits were quick to jump on their soap boxes when say there were riots in Paris and to proclaim that would never happen here. But that was always a purely British perspective. Virtually every country thought and still thinks their type of integration is the best type.
