British English

Today I want to post a letter written to the Daily Telegraph last September by Mr. Andy Preston of London NW3. I hope he will forgive me for reproducing it here. "Sir - My mother applied for a local NHS service recently and was asked to state her nationality. Upon stating that she was English, she was informed that this was not an accepted category. She could be Scottish, Welsh or Irish, but if she was English she had to put down "British"." I think this letter speaks for itself and needs no comment from me.
