The battle is on the cultural front now . . " To recapitulate, I have tried to counter the claims of the longestablished to superior Britishness. A first attempt at rebuttal used Raymond Williams's depiction of an ever-retreating horizon as one searches for that upon which one might erect the notion of any settled belongingness. That is, all cultural structures are built upon shifting sands; there are Transatlantic Homes 21 no unquestionable Britons.
