So you are in effect the epitome of what an English person is, a mongrel. Over the 1,200 years of English history we've seen many invaders who have
come here and settled, affecting the gene pool. Even prior to the foundation of the nation, we had Norsemen coming over and settling, before that it
was the Angles, Saxons and Jutes, before that it was the Romans and other nationalities from the Empire and before that it was the Celts from Central
You might think you are 3/4 English, but what does that even mean? I am willing to bet, if you're ancestry is anything like mine, you'll have all
sorts of flavours, especially if you go back into the 18th and 19th century. What matters more than ancestry though and what generally defines your
culture/nationality, is where you were born and how you were raised
Doesn't it also kind of raise eyebrows though that you throw accusations around yourself about the Queen being German, based on the fact an ancestor
several generations removed was German, despite not being a "full bodied English person" yourself?
You may also think I may be "accusing" but all I am doing is calling you out and you don't like it.
