IMPORTING THE SUPERIOR CULTURE:

Ethnic minorities more likely to feel British than white people, says research (Daily Mail, 18th February 2007)

Ethnic minorities are now more likely to feel British than white people, research has found.

The study by the Institute for Public Policy Research said that 51 per cent of blacks and Asians describe themselves as British compared with just 29 per cent of whites.

The left-leaning think tank warns of a 'growing divide' in England between those who consider themselves English or British.

It argues that UK is in the grip of a national identity crisis as the white population increasingly fragments into English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish identities.

The multiculturalists claimed the British identity and Blair's government decided to be their enforcers, but the people themselves have voted with their feet and with their opinions. Growing up in England I never saw the English flag, but now it is everywhere.

ZF - What time frame are you talking about when you started to see the flag? Here in the U.S., the Stars & Stripes were virtually invisible until 9/11 and now, it's flying everywhere and it's a sight for sore eyes.
