Since the 7/7 London bombings, much has been said about the end and at times, the 'death' of multiculturalism in both the public and political spaces. Considering whether much of this discourse is little more than a thinly veiled discourse about the presence, role and responsibilities of Muslims in today's Britain, the paper takes the findings of the 1997 Runnymede Report into Islamophobia and uses this as a premise from which to explore those arguments and ideas that have ensued. Taking its title from an article written by Norman Lamont in The Daily Telegraph, the paper questions the sometimes tenuous relationship between 'multiculturalism' and notions of 'Britishness' as well as their effect and resonance contemporarily on perceptions and attitudes shown towards Muslims.
