The Daily Telegraph
May I remind your readers that according to Government Guidelines - available at: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/about/ethnic_group_statistics/downloads/ethnic_group_statistics.pdf people are free to "self-define" which ethnic group they belong to.
Quote "Is a person's ethnic group self-defined?
Yes. Membership of an ethnic group is something that is subjectively
meaningful to the person concerned, and this is the principal basis for ethnic categorisation in the United Kingdom."
And that "ethnic groups, however defined or measured, will tend to evolve depending upon social and political attitudes or developments".
And "an ethnic group would be defined as a community whose
heritage offers important characteristics in common between its
members and which makes them distinct from other communities.
There is a boundary, which separates 'us' from 'them', and the distinction would probably be recognised on both sides of that boundary."
I think it is obvious that traditional country people have a different "heritage" to the urban elite and the evidence is that there is a clear "them and us". We are our own Ethnic Minority, all we have to do is "self-define". So let me publicly self-define myself to be "Traditional English" and that "Traditional English" is a separate Ethnic Group to any other, including the majority "English".
Any insults, discrimination or attacks against the heritage of "Traditional English" is now covered by the Race Relation Acts etc. and I will expect the full protection of the Law.
Any reader who also feels they are a member of this Ethnic Minority and has suffered because of their membership should make their local police and authorities aware of the serious crime that has occurred against them.
