Since when have you been able to foretell the outcome of referenda? Is
it god magic? Or are you simply a lot more clairvoyant then you seem to
be from you idiotic ramblings?
Honey, I am not fighting for my freedom. I am already free. The very
fact that the people of Scotland are holding a referendum is because
they are free to do so.
If the majority in Scotland decide they want to be separate from the
rest of the UK then fine, it’s a free vote and has fook all to do with
your spite, vindictive hatred and deliberate attempts at obfuscation.
Yes the dominant language in Britain is English so what? What has this
to do with the upcoming referendum? My guess is whatever the outcome
then the dominant language in Scotland will remain English
That does not mean the language “originated”(your word) in England nor
does it meant that changing the goalpost does not make you look any less
of an idiot because just the opposite is true.
Yes, the dominant language will remain English because, the English are the dominant in the UK and Britain, Scottish and Welsh are in the minority.

speak English, even you make a good attempt at it and you are not
English so whats your excuse for that?
I am glad you have accepted your stubborness and stupidity, as long as English, the language of England, is the dominant in the UK, their population is the largest, their influence cuts accross the globe. The Scots did not do that.

Say what? And elephants and whales should have been the dominant species
on earth because they are bigger – right?
Or how about insects being the most dominant because there are more of
them than English speaking peoples.
By you logic here we should all be speaking Chinese,
You are truing to introduce irrelevancies to change the scope of the
discussion – why is this, is it because you have nothing in the main
argument?
Lol you can not give a vivid response to my statement and question. Again, if the English are in the minority, why then English language still remain the dominant in the UK instead of Scottish?

You have been provided with several sources to say otherwise and you

Nope not solely, People born in England with a right to British
citizenship are British, they are not known officially as English. What
you as the great god charley idiot chooses to call them is entirely a
matter for your limited intellect.
All languages are primary languages to the people who use them as a
first language
Read through the lines, you idiot. The world knows that i am right, if English did not originated in England, its inhabitants would not be called the English solely.

And again, i never said the English are not British, they are, but to differentiate them from other British nationals, by that, England would be English and Scotland, Scottish.

I did not say any such thing, do you have a problem reading English? Or
is it comprehension you have problems with?
I said that there are very few true English who can trace their genetic
ancestry to before the Roman invasion, then the Saxon and Norman
invasions diluted the “English” bloodline even further
So, how did English became the dominant in the UK instead of Scottish?

Did you not read my post? I stated and I quote
“Even the British government don’t know how many English people there
are”…
I knew you were stupid, I know your were ignorant but I did not take you
for illiterate too.
Wrong, real English are not the biggest ethnic group in England because
there are not enough real English people.
Genetics has you beat, Note this is the same genetics that you would be
quote happy to convict with 100% certainty a suspected felon to life
imprisonment or even the death penalty.
And i don't care, as long as English remains the dominant language in the UK, and not Scottish, they are still very much in control.

WTF has Scotland got to do with it? Honey, you are only allows one set
of goalposts in this game, you can move them all you like and I will
tell you when you move them but you cannot invent an second set of
goalposts posts just because you’ve lost the first set. So why more
irrelevant garbage?
English is the most spoken language in the US too and Australia and
South Africa and several other countries, your point is what?
It is estimated that around 375 million people speak English as their
first language
That’s a lot of people speak English?
However around 390 million people speak Spanish as their first language
And around 1.365 billion people speak Manderin/Cantonese as their first
language.
You are really not ready to learn. As long as the inhabitants of England are English, and know one else is bearing that title except them, you are wrong.

Thanks. I used that word, " significant", because, the English to date, are the dominant ethnic group in the UK. OK?

Does the fact that the UK is not the US have any meaning for you? The
term being English has little/no official meaning in Britain. And people
in America are free to call there ancestry whatever they like. I have
also heard it said that around 42% of white Americans have black African
genes and 39% New World Indian genes. I wonder if those Americans
claiming English ancestry were among these peoples?
So is that the genetic English? Pre Roman invasion? Even before then
there was a considerable amount of Germanic and Gaelic procreation going
on among traders.
Or the Roman (and all the Mediterranean nationalities the Romans brought
in) mixed with the Saxon, mixed with the Norman, mixed with a couple of
thousand years of trading and a couple of hundred years of empire?
If you think the English developed in the last 1000 years then you have a
point but England/English have been here longer than the Romans, Saxons
and Normans. Truly English can be genetically traced back to the celtic
tribes.
This is a question you have not answered, when does Englishness begin?
Which year?
History! and i hope you also know that the Celts, like the Angles, Saxons and Jutes were all primitive invaders? so, if you want to go with the that, the Celts were not truly the first in that island.

First spoken was not your claim, your claim was “originated”. It seems that you are moving the goal posts again
Modern English developed from Middle English and Middle English developed from Old English
Old English was a dialect of northern European language that developed from several sources as has already been shown to you.
So no, English did not originate in England, it developed in England
I have been using that word" first spoken", why the lie? like i have said, since English is not native to those so called European nations, it did not originated there, but originated in where it was first spoken and also where it is native to them.
