Darth_Lukecash: English identity in Europe? I take it France, Spain and other nation wouldn't want English identity to be the majority.
Somacandra: [i.imgur.com image 720x432]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?
HotWingAgenda: English identity used to feel threatened by the Scottish identity, too. F*ck you, England.
Friction8r: Darin espouses survival of the fittest. Nothing for us to be worried about ultimately.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Kind of like Man Coulter at CPAC lamenting the "browning of America."
log_jammin: when did we start exporting our dog whistles to the UK?
Amnestic: HotWingAgenda: English identity used to feel threatened by the Scottish identity, too. F*ck you, England.Not all of us are clutching our pearls about losing "English/British Identity" - whatever the hell that is. I'm not surprised the Torygraph is publishing this article though.
whistleridge: 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.
farkeruk: 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.
MrBallou: Welcome to America's dilemma. How do you say, "I'd like fries chips with that" in Spanish?

jamspoon: 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.

Animatronik: So they're saying 30% of people there will be eating tasty food with straight teeth?
HotIgneous Intruder: Yes, white people are becoming a minority.
