GUEST,The black belt caterpillar wrestler What does 'English' mean? (75* d) RE: What does 'English' mean? 17 Dec 07

I thought that the British were generally pushed west and north by the Celts when they came to what we call the British Isles about 3 centuries before the Romans turned up.

Many who call themselves English do not want to be thought of as British, and want to be called European even less.

I'm not sure that I like to be thought of as English either, it seems a bit too vague. Who can think of Northumbrian's, Salopians, Kentish men, Men of Kent etc. as all being part of the same race?
