Whose 'Britishness' exactly?

How can anyone respond to Howard's speech on so-called Britishness? Anyone who disagrees with him by pointing at the statistics, anyone who accuses him of fighting a single-issue campaign, just plays into his hands.

Because this is precisely his argument: that people who talk about Britishness and immigration are immediately 'attacked' as racist and scare mongering...

So, here we go again. We've got to listen to it all. The numbers games, the old vocabulary. We're being 'swamped,' our values 'trashed,' and, of course, everyone wants to come here. When are we ever going to have a proper, calmer debate based on hard facts? Not in the middle of an election campaign, that's for sure...
