Nil Desperandum

Always laugh at the BBC’s desperate attempts to malign and undermine the British identity…by Pallab Ghosh….

DNA study finds London was ethnically diverse from start

Well yes…it was a city established by Roman Invaders with soldiers who came from all around Europe and beyond…as the BBC knows full well….

Who was in the Roman army?

Only men could be in the Roman Army. No women. Every Roman soldier was a Roman citizen. He had to be at least 20 years old. He was not supposed to get married while he was a soldier. Most soldiers in the Roman Empire came from countries outside Italy. There were Roman soldiers from Africa, France, Germany, the Balkans, Spain and the Middle East.

Ghosh’s contention is that because they have found some skeletons with DNA from North Africa that means that Britain was a wonderfully multi-cultural land of immigrants …so why worry about immigration now?…that of course ignores the fact we’re not Romans, let alone North African, and that debate around immigrtion centres mostly on space and resources, quality of life, as well as cultural and identity issues…..he doesn’t mention that at least two of the skeletons were probably from slaves…one being a gladiator and one a girl from North Africa.

‘The analysis reveals what some of the very first Londoners looked like and where they came from.

The first results are from four people: two had origins from outside Europe, another was from continental Europe and one was a native Briton.’

I imagine the BBC would come to a similar conclusion about the wondrous multiculturalism of Russia if they looked at graves in Moscow and found some Germans there….conclusion all Russians are in fact descended from German invaders… such thing as a ‘Russian’.

The BBC’s strange take is that because London was established by the Romans it is OK to dismiss the identity and existence of the rest of the population of Britain.

The population of Britain may have been in flux with various invasions but for the last 1000 years it has remained fairly stable as DNA studies show….nearly every Brit has DNA that links them to the old Britons and Celts….something the BBC is desperate to deny.

The Guardian blows the BBC’s narrative apart….

‘The Romans, Vikings and Normans may have ruled or invaded the British for hundreds of years, but they left barely a trace on our DNA, the first detailed study of the genetics of British people has revealed.

The analysis shows that the Anglo-Saxons were the only conquering force, around 400-500 AD, to substantially alter the country’s genetic makeup, with most white British people now owing almost 30% of their DNA to the ancestors of modern-day Germans.’

Perhaps that’s why we are so often called  ‘Anglo-Saxons’……no surprise there then….that should put an end to all those smug left wing comedians whinging about our alien ‘German’ Royal Family.

The Telegraph also undermines the BBC’s agenda….

‘Britons are still living in the same ‘tribes’ that they did in the 7th Century, Oxford University has found after an astonishing study into our genetic make-up.

Archaeologists and geneticists were amazed to find that genetically similar individuals inhabit the same areas they did following the Anglo-Saxon invasion, following the fall of the Roman Empire.

In fact, a map showing tribes of Britain in 600AD is almost identical to a new chart showing genetic variability throughout the UK, suggesting that local communities have stayed put for the past 1415 years.

Many people in Britain claim to feel a strong sense of regional identity and scientists say they the new study proves that the link to birthplace is DNA deep.’

    What is constantly ignored is the fact that the Romans were invaders – conquers – we didn’t invite them or send out boats to help them get here quicker. The Romans then of course imposed their ways and customs onto the defeated population: Any dissent was brutally crushed – eg Boudicca’s uprising.

    The difference today is that the invaders have been invited by politicians against the wishes of most of the population and through the doctrine of multi-culturalism imposing the invaders culture onto the host population.

      The simple mind of the libtard can’t differentiate between settlers, invaders and immigrants.


      • LostOverThere says:

        They no doubt think Rudolf Hess was an asylum seeker?


        • Guest Who says:

          On FaceBook someone posted a picture of Steve Jobs, captioned ”Without immigration, we would not have iPhones’.

          I thought the image of the Earth from the Moon with the caption ‘Tx, Werner. Go figure’ was rather funny in reply.


  2. Gunner says:

    Yep, total BBC bollocks. Even though the Roman period lasted four centuries there was only a very small genetic impact, and most of that was from germanic auxiliaries who settled.


  3. Sir_Arthur_Strebe-Grebling says:

    And in a few centuries’ time, after the Muslim invaders have obliterated all the natives, the bBBC’s successor will conclude that we never existed.

    “Ghosh’s contention is that because they have found some skeletons with DNA from North Africa that means that Britain was a wonderfully multi-cultural land of immigrants…”

    What? There is absolutely nothing in the BBC report that even comes close to your bizarre interpretation; not the slightest hint about the rest of Britain. But apparently, according to your paranoid fantasies, DNA tests by the Museum of London are part of a pro-immigration conspiracy; and it’s all the BBC’s fault because they reported the findings.

    “The BBC’s strange take is that because London was established by the Romans it is OK to dismiss the identity and existence of the rest of the population of Britain.”

    The BBC report says nothing about, “the rest of the population of Britain”.

    “The Guardian blows the BBC’s narrative apart….”

    No it doesn’t. For a start, the “narrative” comes from the Museum of London, and there is no claim it has anything to do with; “the rest of the population of Britain”

    “The Telegraph also undermines the BBC’s agenda….”

    An “agenda” you’ve demonstrated no evidence for, and quite clearly doesn’t exist outside of your over-stretched imagination.



    • BBC delenda est says:

      “these are people just like us.” Caroline McDonald – BBC report.
      Just like us, true because London is now a foreign enclave populated by people just like Jason, and MacDonald, true to the BBC treason, and the aliens from elsewhere who need to be returned to the ground.

      The real climate change agenda, pseudo-scientific, reporting is not mentioned by Jason.

      Four skeletons were examined out of c20,000. The results were based on these.

      Chosen, because they exhibited the traits, which the authors of the report, wished to stress.

      In other words, let us search through the remains, select individuals because of their apparent ancestry, then subject them to “scientific enquiry”, which confirms the bias they wish to show.

      Voila, QED, there has been no change since.



    • Guest Who says:

      Speaking of over-stretched minds…

      Another idle moment in the wee small hours and Jason decides to head here again to hone his teaching assistant box ticking skills with some marking practice? Bless.

      Ever tried that with BBC efforts? They do have a section for compliments. A few 11/10’s and he’ll be an ECU director before he can write, with all due flourish, ‘got it about right’.

    Romans came and settled London and obviously had Black African slaves. What’s the point?
