Ask not what it is...

Surely the question should be "What do we want it to be to be British?"

All the debate you hear about in the media and from politicians about defining Britishness, and lets ignore the inherent narrow mindedness of this question, talks about what it is to be British. This seems to be a fundamentally flawed approach being as it is all about, at best, the present. I am much more interested in what we want to be; in looking forward to how a society should be and working out how to move towards that. Change as the nice man across the pond is wont to say.
