As an Englishman I don’t regard them as ‘these people’, as though they have no connection to us. They are our early Englisc (original spelling, though pronounced the same) ancestors. The English existed long before 1066, and we are still here now – their descendants – despite the politically motivated DNA nonsense that is designed to write the English out of their own history.

It is remarkable – when I do talks at schools for example – that much emphasis is given on the Romans, Vikings, Normans etc an not much on the Saxons.
Each wave of immigration (and we are as a nation pretty much all immigrants) is important but the race that gave us our language and shaped our landscape etc needs to be remembered.
