Why do so many application forms these days only have options for White-British or White-other? I am White English, my ancestors have lived in England for over a thousand years. My ancestors are Anglo-Saxon and Norse (Vikings and Normans). A dog born in a stable is still a dog not a horse! You can be Black – British but not Black English. The English are a defined race of people. It seems the word English has become a dirty word. The Welsh and Scots can have their own Governments but not the English. Who is prepared to stand up and preserve English customs and culture?
