The Daily Mail’s Definition of Britishness

Golly. The Daily Mail seems to have a very narrow, dangerous view of who is, and who isn’t, British:

However although the figures from the Government’s Office for National Statistics show an increase in numbers of foreign born people they still fail to record the true impact of immigration because they record their children as British rather than second or third generation immigrants.

How – what’s the word? – charming.
