Just in case anybody wondered, The Daily Mail reminds us about the mode of thought motivating today’s “Little Englanders”.
Case in point: The Mail’s character assassination of Nick Clegg – never mind his policies or political efficacy…
The multilingual Lib Dem leader was born to a Dutch mother and a half-Russian father, and employs a German spin doctor.
and it just gets worse:
Mrs Clegg, a Roman Catholic, admits that she refused her husband’s plea to give English names to their three sons, Antonio, Alberto and Miguel.
The word we’re looking for does indeed begin with an X. But in a way it is fascinating that something so noxious can be published in a mainstream newspaper.
I wonder how the Brits would react to a similar report in Bild-Zeitung. Or perhaps not.
