The BBC continues to refer to the mayhem on our streets as the ‘English Riots’. Since this now seems to be the officially accepted designation, can we expect a box on the next census form to allow us to identify ourselves as ‘English’?
But Littlejohn doesn't need to wait ten years for such a box - because there was one in this year's census.
Question 15 asked 'How would you describe your national identity?' and allowed you to select an answer from this list: English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish, British and other (write in).
