    Go on Jeremy Kyle for a DNA results test to see if you stole 10 pounds from your step-dad's hamster.

    Go to Spain and act like a tourist?

    Also possibly incorporate the colloquialisms: 'mate', 'luv', and so forth.

    Asian isn't a gender... at least, I've never heard it used that way before. Male, Female, or Asian? That doesn't sound right.

    Well, I would say the main thing you want to do is learn English as well as possible, and try to take accent reduction classes. The closer your speech sounds to Received Pronunciation, the better. Definitely use some exclusively British words and phrases.

    Other than that, dress like a British person. Follow the same interests that you see British people following. When in London, do as the British do. LOL.

    Not necessarily. If say, his family brought him up to be 'British' then he definitely would be culturally British. I'm half Moroccan, and whilst I don't look fully English, I definitely am 100% culturally. Depends on more factors than just biological routes.
    Lol, no no no. Doesn't matter whether he's lived here for a thousand years, if he's not pure white race then he's not British and neither are you, I'm sorry. Attempting to adopt British culture can never make you British if you're not white European. It's purely based on race and ethnicity.

    If say the physiognomy was that of a white European person, but not 'pure white', then the person isn't 'British'? Saying yes would be very contentious, in that drawing a line would be arbitrary. Soon enough, no one will be British if that is what to be British is.

    P.S. Why would it even matter what ethnicity you are? Britain isn't just people with ancestry from Britain, so really it would be fair to exclude those that have been born here and brought up as 'British'.
