Election research (3) - Britishness

UKIP seem to be cranking out their policies at snail's pace, with several still unavaible to read. Still, it's worth reading those that are, especially when you find brilliant quotes like this; "UKIP believes Britishness can be defined in terms of belief in democracy, fair play and freedom, as well as traits such as politeness."

For me, it conjured up* an image of bearded cricketers in line for tiffin at the tea-break, denouncing a queue-jumper with exclamations of "bad form old chap. Bad form".

*As a Christian, is it ok to use the idiom "conjured up", which connotes sorcery etc?
