Multiculturalism as a sword to fall on

Mark Steyn wraps up an amusing article about the self-loathing of British multiculturalists with the following indictment:

And that's particularly unworthy of the British, whose language, culture and law have been the single greatest force for good in this world. This isn't merely a question for the history books, but the issue that underpins all the others facing the country today, not least the European Constitution: at a time when the benefits of the Britannic inheritance are more and more apparent everywhere else, how come Britain has no use for them?
