Who speaks for England?

Listening to an LBC phone in on immigration earlier this evening, one caller went too far. It wasn’t that he argued that there was too much immigration or that uncontrolled immigration causes problems, a sentiment which is voiced commonly enough, but that he claimed that whole areas of East Anglia had ceased to be *******. Naturally, the host of the show, Ayesha Hazarika, former advisor to Ed Miliband, reacted angrily. This was deeply insulting to all those, like her own parents, who had come to Britain to find a new home, to work hard, to contribute to society. He was promptly cut off.
