The Home Office is trying to censor a report that makes blunt and damning criticisms of ministers' failure to manage the impact of mass immigration, integrate minorities and tackle extremism.
The report, by the government's integration tsar, Dame Louise Casey, has been ready for months, but publication has been delayed after Home Office officials expressed "concern" and "unhappiness" about its content and language.
The report is understood to:
- Attack the government for failing to get a grip on the pace of immigration and its impact on public services until too late
- Criticise the lack of a strategy to integrate communities, by allowing some areas to operate as if they were Muslim-only zones, with state schools closing for Friday prayers
