Making of a British hero

It was great to watch Mo Farah win the Great North Run in a very exciting finish with thousands of local people in South Shields cheering him on.

In the last few years, Mo has rightly become a real British hero.

But, of course, Mo was born in Somalia and came here as an immigrant.

Doesn’t Mo’s great success and well deserved British hero status just show how out of touch with reality all those who demonise all immigrants really are?
