The indigenous peoples of, er, Britain?

Some cheeky person commented on an image i made parodying the BNP’s Nick Griffin, suggesting that I should read the UNITED NATIONS DECLARATION ON THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES and expand my mind.

As a student of archaeology I find the notion of an indigenous British population frankly amusing, so I thought I might offer my thoughts and response on the matter regurgitated here

…since it’s first occupation several millennia ago Britain has been a rich mixture of people featuring a diverse range of origins, races, ethnic backgrounds and beliefs.

So, it all depends on how you define indigenous.

But then again I’m perhaps not entitled to comment. I was born in England the grandson of a German refugee who came here in the Second World War to escape the threats of a nation that feared and had turned against anyone that was different from an artificial ideal manufactured by a mad man.

Britain was a nation that welcomed her, protected her and accepted her. If these qualities ever desist to apply then I’ll be on the first boat out of here.
