Why would people care about what they call themselves; unless they have a problem with the certain nationality.

i think the poster was pointing out the need for social harmonisation and assimilation.

Lol. How can;

"Why don't they speak English in front of us?"
"Why don't they wear British clothes, and join in with British culture?"

Translate to;

"I think the poster was pointing out the need for social harmonisation and assimilation."

Nice try, Vienna.

i think it is rather inpolite of you to belittle someones comments based on the fact that they cant express them as best as we might wish. they were pointing out two prominent examples of problems in social harmonisation, that being the lack of effort made by non-indigenous citizens to learn the english language and/or to assimilate themselves with British culture.

Not at all. The person expressed his/her views quite adequately. I think it is quite impolite for you to butt-in ansd explain what you think the person was trying to point out.

Last time I checked, it is OK to be British whilst, embracing and practising the culture of your predecessors.

if butting in was replying to your, firstly, dry one-word answer to their comment and then a counter comment against it then by all means, although i have to say it must leave you with a warped sense of forum mechanics.

but can you expect that to generate social harmonisation and the assimilation of Britons with non-British heritage.

Why do some politicians now seem to think its wrong to be patriotic. They seem to think that patriotism is anti - everyone else. But its not. In fact, if everyone was proud of their country and willing to do their best for it, while at the same time helping other countries, Briton might not have degenerated like it has in the past 50 years.

patriotism generally runs against the European idea of multi-culturalism, which is the big agenda throughout the EU at the moment. unfortunately, they'll do anything to distort reality to acheive this. thus being patriotic quickly gets allied to racism...in short its not PC.

Pedanticity is what you get when you take a light-hearted joke, seriously.
