"English identity." Golly gee, that's a mighty shiny dog whistle you got there, Mister.

English identity in Europe? I take it France, Spain and other nation wouldn't want English identity to be the majority.

So...apparently we're all supposed to pretend the British Empire and enculturation of various societies never occurred? There wouldn't be any reason for peoples who were part of the Empire to perhaps take advantage of said historical ties? Because the British made damn sure that its colonial components were thoroughly familiar with British institutions and history, even though primary students in the British West Indies had never seen snow in their entire lives. They damn sure knew about it, because the only history and literature and religion they learned in colonial school was British. How can any society spend hundreds of years occupying brown people all over the world and then wonder why there are tons of brown people walking on their streets?

I have a feeling various Welsh and Scottish communities might take issue with that as well.

I feel stupid...but until right now I never knew there was a  British Guiana.

I guess that would explain why
people felt it necessary to say "French" Guiana instead of justGuiana.

Um...monocles were actually an Imperial German thing, not an English thing. Certain British royals and their toadies used them for a spell because, believe it or not the German monarchy was quite popular/fashionable (and first cousins), but it certainly wasn't really a thing for the English/British in general.

English identity?

We're a country with a cross of a man from Nazareth. Our saint comes from Georgia. Our language has large chunks of German, Welsh, Latin, Norse and Celtic as people migrated here and we have various hair colours because they wanted some hawt Wessex and Anglian chicks.

The English identity doesn't even exist. The life of someone raised in Inner City London is different to someone living in rural Somerset. You'll hear bits of Jamaican patois in London, but you'll hardly ever meet a black person in rural Somerset.

Because they thought it would last forever and the population flow would always be outward.  You can pass around a bottle of the finest single malt, but you'll be drinking backwash by the end.

In his story about going to observe the Boer War, Churchill writes about sailing up the southeast coast of Africa and visualizing a future when all those peaceful verdant lands were covered with productive industries, black people diligently working and white children playing in the sun.  F*ck that.

I am English. We dont HAVE an identity to feel threatened over. We just kind of 'are' stuff. Mostly we find it all a bit embarrassing.

Scots have an identity that they obsess over, but think about it.. you obsess over a largely made up or borrowed identity (Always funny to see a glaswegian talk about bannockburn or wear a kilt), and you define your nation primarily through 'fark the english'. This might indicate a few issues?

As a white Brit I identify as either British or Northern English. I avoid the "English" tag as it has been adopted by the fascist/racist right in the UK. So the polling is correct in identifying a group of retards who use the English tag to mean white.

Too old to leave, besides I like it here.

Animatronik: So they're saying 30% of people there will be eating tasty food with straight teeth?


We all use the same health service which now routinely straighten teeth. Also we all eat the tasty imported menu over the traditional cuisine. So 100% will in future have tasty food with straight teeth, just there will be a bigger diversity in appearance.
