This study suggests that these debates still draw on discourses of Englishness which were

Notions of individual and collective identity have revolved around a number of stereotypes of ̀Britishness' or ̀Englishness' which appear ever more incongruous. This study suggests that these debates still draw on discourses of Englishness which were shaped in the interwar period and amplified in Second World War propaganda.
