It has been more than a year since I published my report on opportunity and integration, in which I warned the Government we were sleepwalking into an increasingly segregated country.
I was then the Integration Tsar and what my study — commissioned by David Cameron and Theresa May — discovered was a country drifting apart.
It found communities were becoming increasingly insular, and opportunities for some in the poorest and most isolated areas were virtually non-existent.
I told how attempts to tackle integration had been feeble — nothing more than "saris, samosas and steel drums for the already well-intentioned".
And I urged our leaders to do something about it. We need big, bold ideas, I said. And then . . . silence. Into the long grass it went.
