She had come to England as a refugee from Bosnia in 1992. I picked up a claim the other day that the standard survey question ( eg in the Place Survey ) "to which of these groups do you consider you belong.?"

I think this may be as much about instinctive resistance to being pigeonholed (a sentiment with which I have much sympathy) as it is about confusion between ethnic categorisation and racism. But I could be wrong.
