I hear all this rubbish about us being Anglo-Saxon as if we are an homogenous race apart from Europe and the rest of the world. It is simply not true. I believe people do not really know what they are talking about.   We British are a mixture of races – mainly European but also with genetic input from all over the world. A short look at our evolution starkly demonstrates that.   The Iron Age inhabitants were the Celts who probably originated in India and came to Britain from France and Germany The Angles and Saxons (Jutes and Frisians) came from Germany and Denmark The Romans came from Italy The Normans came from France The Vikings came from Sweden, Norway and Denmark Through trade and Empire we took in immigrants from China, Africa, Arabia and Indonesia. The waves of immigration from the Huguenots, Jews, S…

Sexual Players and Inappropriate Advances.

Christ Wants to Shatter Our Delusions

I am living in a fantasy when I view life as it circles around me. As believers, we sing and recite prayers that proclaim that God is the centre of all but our psychological makeup screams the exact opposite.
