Journal Entry 1 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Wednesday, July 10, 2013
An interesting attempt to define the indefinable. As Paxman points out, the English tend to be defined more in terms of what they aren't (Scottish, Welsh, Irish, foreign...) than what they actually are. The book's a bit rambling at times, and I'm not sure if I agree with all of his conclusions (it's also starting to seem a bit dated), but it's scattered with interesting bits.
