My estimate, based on actually living here, seeing the people every

the country estimates the real percentage of true English people to be
less than 1%
And it must be an estimate based on real life because statistics for the
number of people who’s DNA can prove them to be truly English DO NOT
exist.
Few? ok few. but every one knows that the English in Scotland are not truly Scottish, but English, so, if the English are few in numbers, why is English the most spoken language in Britain and the UK?

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

And i hope you also know that in the US, they ENGLISH do have the third largest population, and according to research, there was even an undercount. So, why would that be different in the UK?

And lastly, as long as England as a place or nation, exist, and its inhabitants are solely English, your statement is wrong.

Perhaps you need to install some more multi language software. Try
looking at the menu of your word processor. In the language option you
will find something along the lines of “set language” In mine there are
15 versions of English from English (Australian) to English (Zimbabwe)
and it includes English (British)
Go figure, you are wrong again…
Yes, the people of England are English. this is used to differentiate other British nationals like the Sots and Welsh.

Do some research about the English( from England), and those in the diaspora, and see how your stupidity is measured.

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 should probably look up the meaning of "significant" before going any further. Your ignorance is showing. Just sayin

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.
As long as the English as a people and nation do exist, you are the stupid. the language was first spoken in England. Cry.

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?

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

One will not even mention the West of Ireland variants, of which there are several.
Most of which are incomprehensible to Americans.

I have also seen a New Englander (Maine) utterly fail to communicate wth a Louisianan.
