The Re-Britannification of Britain

It's a shame Boris Johnson's image is so poor, because the man talks sense. If we facilitate separate existence for our immigrants - providing government literature in foreign languages, kow-towing to every culture but our own, then can we expect any better than to breed our own enemies?

I have had the honour to administer the oath of allegiance to many new Britons in my time. I always shook their hand and welcomed them to citizenship. As far as I am concerned, all are welcome to be British if they come in peace and with a genuine desire to become part of our society. Most do.

Boris is right that we must also stop being embarrassed about our own nation and its symbols. Fly the flag. Why not?
