The excellent Mark Pack has written a post reminding us that the Daily Mail considers everyone born overseas and everyone with parents born overseas to be a foreigner.
Now, firstly, there's nothing wrong with being a foreigner and only xenophobic bigots think otherwise.
But, secondly, I'm one of those people the Daily Mail would consider a foreigner.
My parents were both born in Britain and were British citizens but I happened to be born abroad, in Belgium. I was registered as a British citizen from birth, we visited England regularly while we lived in Belgium and I myself have lived in England ever since I was five years old.
But the Daily Mail considers me to be a foreigner. And by including the likes of me as a foreigner they get to make up big scary statistics about so many millions of people being foreigners taking this country away from decent British folk.
Well I'm British and I'm English. I was born an Englishman and a British citizen and I will die an Englishman and a British citizen.
And if the Daily Mail choose to insist otherwise then they can go fuck themselves for all I care.
