Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

Where else in the world would this particular grouping of writers have any meaning? "Britain did this to us," is how Gary Younge put it. "Before we came here our parents were from all over the Empire. But being in Britain gave us all a common identity." From where I stand it's difficult to see anything good about the British Empire and its aftermath, but this photograph, with all its shades of ethnicity, does represent one positive legacy. A new group of people who are, in one way or another, part of Britain but who bring with them experience and creativity from many different parts of the world.
