- I read that before I even made the post you're replying to.
- I recommend you read it before linking it.
- I said "Not much changed (genetically) in the past 900 years (beyond mixing with other British groups), and not much even with the Normans."
- And the article you linked says " Studies of DNA suggest that the biological influence on Britain of immigration from the Norman conquests up till the 20th century was small; The native population's genetics was marked more by stability than change".
- I said: "Virtually all immigration (including invasion) into Britain between 0AD and 1930AD was European, most of it NW European." and the article says (1800-1945)
- 2,339,000. What European groups are there? Belgians, French, Germans, Hungarians, Irish, Poles, and Americans who are genetically European.
- 70,000 + 240,000 + 40,000 + 100,000 + 2,000 + 1,500,000 + 40,000 + 5,000 = 1,997,000
- That's only 342,000 non-Europeans AT MOST. And it's 85% European immigration.
- Now it obviously doesn't count that many of those don't stay.
- The people who were already here had a bigger effect on our genetics, immigration prior to the 1800s was smaller, etc.
- Another quote from the article:
- "The overall foreign born population of Britain being 0.6% in 1851, 1.5% in 1901, many coming from Eastern Europe and Russia."
- On the other hand, what DOESN'T the article say?
- It DOESN'T say there was some mythical level of migration prior to the 19th century, that the country was always less than 80% British, that London was always less than 50% British, etc. You believe in a fairytale that England was "diverse" before the 1940s.
