    I’m afraid you have a very limited understanding of how quickly people from different cultures intermix and share their gene-pool. Only the most sensitive DNA tests can discern any difference at all between the different areas of of Britain. Even then, these are only averages. Your comic-book version of history is absurdly simplistic. It’s exactly the kind of nonsense that gave some the idea of a pure “master race”. The real world is far more complex and far, far more interesting.

    Started out reasonable, but then you completely arsed it at the end. British mismanagement of Ireland is well recognised, but to characterise it as “ethnic cleansing” is drivel of the lowest order. The rest does not even come close to being rational. Scotland? Really??? You are aware that (a) Scotland is a part of Britain and (b) England (which I suspect you actually mean) never conquered Scotland – didn’t even try for the last 600 years. Stop getting your history lessons from Holywood.

    There is another kid from Britain who once moved to Germany with his parents who also served for the British forces there. The kid grew up, made a career in Germany and now he is the first governor of a German state, German MP, with British descent.

    But you dont have an Aston do you and never will have one so reality allows for real choices not stupid ones ? For if you did then you would know that they are an American-Kuwaiti consortium with a sister company in Austria…I have a Haynes manual for your Polo…I can drop it off when my Rover gets out of the garage!!!

    Aston Martin DB9 or a Polo with an ailing coil pack? Hmm. No more a metaphor for two entire countries than your populist nonsense.

    All this banter maybe the result of German and British culture being a bit too much related. 🙂

    I have got a guilty conscious but not about my nation! It’s a matter of opinion if we are as a nation British. I’m English and not British simply because as you say the Britons are the people in what we now call Wales and Cornwall.

    And Scots or the Scotti tribe came from the same people as the Breatnach or British. Lowland Scots and more Germanic with Saxon and Viking blood but they’re still more British than the English.

    Also good website so well done on your celebration of Englishness…..and I am a Scot!!

  • By Spandau1945, July 26, 2012 @ 1:07 am

    Hi Harry….in answer to your points on the Scots being known as Britons is not totally correct. The Welsh were the original Britons who were forced to North Wales, the East Irish Coast and Southern Scotland after the Roman invasion. Secondly, where on my original post did I blame the English? Ah a guilty conscious. Simply we as a nation, the British, can be transfixed in finger pointing at other nations less than palatable past when our own domestic and foreign history is far from perfect.

  • By HarryBodensson, July 26, 2012 @ 1:35 am

    What do you mean Britains entnic cleansing of Scotland? The Scottish are as British as anyone and played their part in all those ethnic cleanses.

    The Scots were known as “Britons” originally. Germany is a friend of England and I hate the baiting of Germans like during the world cup(I’ve done a video on the subject) but I don’t agree with your reasoning like mistaking England and Britain and blaming just the English for past atrocities.

    Modern-day Germany is a piece of shit. The real Germany died some decades ago.
