Half a nation of stateless people

The survey on Britishness (MW last week) contained the intriguing finding that only 35 per cent of 20to 30-year-olds describe themselves as British. Even assuming that, in this survey, not one inhabitant of Wales or Scotland (13.5 per cent of the British population) nor one single member of an ethnic minority (6.5 per cent) described themselves as British, that still leaves an undeclared 45 per cent. What did they describe themselves as? Wombats? Martians? Croatians? Or perhaps they quite reasonably described themselves as English. I think we should be told.
