Norman Tebbit - Mrs Thatcher's close confidant introduced the 'cricket test'

He objected to English born Pakistanis and no doubt naturalised Pakistani English, riding round with Pakistani flags and supporting Pakistan when they were playing England at cricket

AS a GC walla, I will be behind England's football team tomorrow, but what about you naturalized bods ?

Have you changed your allegiance when you took the oath, or are you supporting this foreign team against your new country ?

It's extremely Orwellian to expect a person to support his adopted country's sports team over his personal favorite. There are millions of Americans who'll be rooting for Brazil. These people maybe from Brazil or they may not be. Or they may speak Portuguese or they may not. They may have visited Brazil or they may not have. To take sports and to make into something about allegiance is utterly stupid and is only expected out of nanny states like UK. You'll have national insecurity problems. Me thinks.

I'll be supporting USA because USA is the underdog in this match.

I'm supporting England even though I'm the USC. I learned to love football by watching it over there and I identified with the team after seeing them in 3 World Cups over there, plus associated other skirmishes. If anyone has a problem with that, I will gladly show them my fist. :D

I watched the US in the last world cup and they were highly impressive and went a long way.

If England does lose, I want them to lose to the USA

But I would rather they didn't - I think

Although if the US does go along way, it might finaly open up the US to 'soccer'

I think the US promoters are missing a trick - if they had a winning team, the money intake would be huge if they had teams coming to the US from all over the world to get whupped by the US

I am sure Americans would pay to see that

However, we digress, I want to know if Bangadeshi Americans would support the US against the country of their birth. People from the Indian sub continent have no probs not choosing England, but they are ducking the question.

It was British born not English born.

That would be a bit like saying you are a Native American because you were born in the US.

ENGEEEEERLAND!

Norman Tebbit wasn't referring to the immigrant population and their adopted country, but their descendants, who were born and raised in the United Kingdom. And the point wasn't about allegiance, but about pride in the country where you were born and which you called home.

When you look at the England cricket team and players like Nasser Hussain, Owais Shah and others, I like to think he had a point. Those descendants of immigrants are now making their mark on the English game, earning their place in the England national team, making the nation proud and sticking it to those Little Englanders who can't accept that these descendants of immigrants are there to stay, because the UK is their home.


Don't interrupt me when I'm talking to myself

I think I am eligible to play for the USA, Ireland was of course famous for pulling in people with very lose connections. I think there is a Brazilian playing for Mexico.
