A Nation Of Immigrants No More

Here's the Guardian's considered opinion on the French riots: 'Europeans of immigrant descent are speaking to us through a pillar of fire. They need acceptance as hyphenated Europeans'. But wait - as an e-mailer reminds me, wasn't it the Left which keeps claiming Europe in general, and Britain in particular, is a 'nation of immigrants'. Are we all seeking acceptance ? And, if so, who from ? Or maybe there are different classes of immigrant, after all. Typical Guardian: there's no such thing as a native Britain, but if there was, they'd be to blame for everything.

Glad we got that cleared up.
