Just what does Englishness and Britishness mean now? How can we go on about being a fair and tolerant society that loves the rule of law when we allow such tragedies?
Its got nothing whatsoever to do with Britishness or Englishness, its some faceless bureaucrat who has decided this is policy. So whats your point?

You're pointing at one or a handful of guys and then generalise to society?
I don't see your conclusion. Sorry, but that's utter rubbish to me.
