I thought that this had been killed off. Sadly not. If the government really wants to promote a shared identity, they should stop their anti-immigrant scaremongering, or just stop pandering to the tabloids in general. Not lazily stereotyping Muslims might be a good start.
The Ministry of Justice insist plans for a British Day have not been axed and remain “very much alive”. The plan for a national holiday, like July 4 in the US or Bastille Day in France, was proposed as part of Gordon Brown’s plan to celebrate Britishness.
