    The Daily Mail won't stop till we are all speaking German. 'Half of Brits are German'? Excuse my GCSE level history, but I'm sure the Germans have never invaded Britain...

    ...Oh! They meant to say Germanic. Silly Daily Mail.

    There's a dipthong found in Dutch/Flemish eg. in "huis" [höys] or [hæys] which can also be heard in southern England and Wales and also in Dublin & Belfast where the Belgae (Fir Bolg) also settled.
    The Dutch diphthong is also found in Welsh - spelled as `wy`- its pronunciation is somewhere in between `oy` and `ey`

    In Dutch. Not 'Dutch/Flemish' (what you call Flemish isn't even Flemish dialect).

    The 'ui'-diphthong ([œʏ̯]) is indeed an interesting sound. It's like a softer variant of our 'eu'-diphthong ([øʏ̯] Netherlands or [ø:] Belgium).

    What peer reviewed genetic study is this from? I don't trust media bullcrap judging that crap they launched about King Tut being related to Western Europeans.

    The way I see it, there're two types of people: those who spend their lives trying to build a future. And those who spend their lives trying to rebuild the past.

    We moeten Nederlands spreken, omdat het helft Duits is.

    Het Nederlands is dan ook een goede middenweg tussen het Engels en het Duits.

    I noticed one interesting thing about UK, I dont know how it works that some Scottish people are physically more similar to central or eastern Europe than the English are, I would think it should be the opposite, England having more continental blood, smaller distance, more immigrants etc. Maybe thats why, maybe Scots are less mixed ith variety of types.
    Am I right or am I wrong?
