Model analysis In her article "Brexit is entrenching some dangerous myths about 'British' culture", published in The Guardian in May 2017, Afua Hirsch tries to convince the reader that the idea of British 'culture' is in no way opposite to the presence of ethnic minorities. Hirsch makes use of a strong structure, line of argument and a number of rhetorical devices to persuade her reader more effectively. Her line of argument is formed of three parts. Firstly, Hirsch identifies a trend in society which displays changes in the ideas of ‘Britishness', namely the exclusion and hostility towards ethnic minorities. She describes this as a regression to imperial times and in the second part of her argument, she uses expert opinion as well as facts and figures to cement this idea. Moreover, the extremities of the figures that she presents - noting that "more than half of the British people [...] felt that people from ethnic minorities threatened their 'culture"" (II. 40-43) - are likely to shock the reader.

discredits the trend in society that she describes by revealing that one of the most quintessentially 'British' foodstuffs was actually contributed by immigrants. After a conclusion, which ties up her arguments, Hirsch ends with an urgent call for action. She calls for "everyone else" (I. 105) to consider the effects on society. By ending in this way, the author certainly passes the baton to the reader who must then continue the debate in their own head.
