No - I realise that you were not implying that, Azizi but thanks for the clarification anyway. As to your question - I was refering to English of any colour although, to be honest, while that is the way I see it (as I have said many times, the beauty of being English is the cultural diversity) I am not sure if many other people do. I suppose if I am honest with myself I find my version of Englishness is, in part, a tollerance of other cultures and peoples. I am, perversely, intollerant of intollerance, regardless of the colour of it's skin, it's religion or it's ethic origins!
I often find myself hoisted by my own petard (oo-err, Missus) by my own intollerant attitude of envisaged stupidity and intollerance. Ah well. I can but apologise and try to do better but it is difficult to tollerate the intollerance of anything different that results in bullying!
