Home Rights

December 23rd, 1992

A letter to the Daily Telegraph which was published on 23rd December 1992.

The Commission for Racial Equality’s attitude to the people of this country is well indicated in Jean Coussin’s letter (Dec. 18th).

The English, Scots, Welsh and Ulster people who constitute about 95 per cent of the population are referred to as “white”, like so many pots of paint, whereas the two principal immigrant groups are carefully dignified with capital letters.

We are all British citizens, but when matters pertaining to racial origin are concerned the ancestral owners of this land are entitled to be referred to by their proper names, which in my case is English.
