Quote of the Day

Reduced, after an age of empire, to our own island, Britain’s advantages continue, and with them, an aware-ness that we have had throughout our history: that the only way for the British to continue to thrive is to get on with others. That is why the greatest British fear, that of offending someone, really matters.

What does it mean to be British?
Rather than relying on Brown and his motley band of faux Unionists to answer that question on our behalf, read instead Professor Ronald Hutton in this morning’s Times.
