    So you have an English passport, not a British passport?
    No, I have a British passport, just like every other person who is a British citizen. However I see passports as a formality, as do most people, apart from the really patriotic ones. A passport says nothing personal about the person who holds it and the life they have lived. The only thing I use my passport for is to leave the country and get into another for a holiday.

    For example, my dad is Jamaican but has a British passport because he decided he wanted one and has lived in England since serving in the Navy. Does that make him any less Jamaican? No. The passport means nothing on a personal level and he's only had it for the past 10ish years, before which he had a Jamaican one; it just says that he gets certain rights and privileges he wouldn't have had without it.

    Nah I don't care because I know what I am and don't need some worthless ******** telling me otherwise.
