Tebbit cricket Test
The cricket test, also known as the Tebbit test, was a controversial phrase coined in April 1990 by the Conservative politician Norman Tebbit in reference to the perceived lack of loyalty of immigrants and their children from South Asia and the Caribbean to the England cricket team. Tebbit suggested that those immigrants who support their native countries rather than England at the sport of cricket are not significantly integrated into the United Kingdom.
