Being of foreign origin, now nationalized, I think that what made me British is the love I felt for this country, and the wish to be part of it.

I struggled to feel British before events like the Queen Mother`s funeral, since them I have felt an increasing sense of British identity. Up until then I have always seen myself as European, as my ancestors were Italian, Irish and French.

Citizenship classes are not just important for new immigrants into Britain, but they should also be taken by young people in school, as many already do. Being a citizen here means you understand the functions of this country, and its institutions. Learning about parliamentary democracy, the rule of law, what it means to have certain freedoms. That is what makes us all British - the capacity to have a common ground of society, with all of our individual characteristics and merits.

What makes me British? The fact that I was born in Britain and have never changed my national status since. End of story.

A true Brit takes pride in his nation’s past achievements as well as its enviable position in the world today. In danger he remains loyal and has an abiding faith in the political system and his fellow countrymen. Race, birthplace and religion are irrelevant.

When I was growing up I had a great sense of pride in my country, Britain, where I was born. Since I have studied history I have realised that the truth is that we have no more and no less reason pride than any other nation. We’ve had our share of heroes - often flawed - and our share of innovators and great leaders, but we also have had feckless rulers, demagogues, pirates and despots, and, of course, football hooligans who have given us a terrible reputation throughout the world and are not a source of pride. But I am proud of this extraordinarily ubiquitous language. That separates us from all other nations, because it is becoming the world’s mother tongue.

If we must define ourselves through nationality, then I define myself as British for this reason: strength, pride, fairness, stubbornness and the British Monarchy!

British characteristics are contradictory - eccentricity with privacy, pride with self-effacement, pragmatism with tradition. We’re a people of innovation, on a permanent nostalgia trip.
