I am confused. At various times this year, I am expected to be British (Olympics), European (Ryder Cup) and English (European Football Championships). Ok, forget the last one.
In my life, I have cheered for famous Brits such as Greg Rudedski, Lennox Lewis and Zola Budd. The England cricket captain is South African, and the two "English" teams in the Champions League final could scarcely raise a bowler hat between them.
This whole nationalist business is meaningless, and often dangerous. I'm a member of the human race, end of rant.
And just where do you think life would be so much better? I invite you to tell us all where things are so great that you would be paid more, and taxed less, and where everything costs less. A place where you have the same freedoms and benefits that you have here, with access to free medical attention, and where the people are happier.
