    Morrissey is really English. He was born in Manchester and grew up there. Speaking as an English person from an Liverpool family that was Irish some generations back on one side and Scottish one generation away on the other, we describe ourselves as English even when acknowledging and honouring the family connection, loyalties and cultural influences of other countries in our background. There are so many people in England who have family links to all parts of the UK that it seems like splitting hairs to try and separate out ‘truly’ English people from Welsh, Irish or Scottish through their heritage.
