After Two World Wars Scientists Tell Brits They are Over Half German in Genetic Makeup

Posted on June 21, 2011

As a youth, SamHenry lived in Toronto, a place that in the 1960s was heaven and unlike all other North American cities.  She worked for an elderly English woman at the Red Cross Society, Out Post Nursing Station department.  One day she and her supervisor were talking about history and then World War I.  She looked up at Sam and said: “My father worked on the Maginot line in France as a munitions expert.  He said wistfully to me one day on leave that he was “sorry it was the Germans they were fighting because they were the most like the Brits of any continental Europeans.”  What foresight because now we know why with a scientific basis:

Forget two world wars and one World Cup… geneticists reveal 50 per cent of Britons are GERMAN

  • Shared gene stems from Germanic tribesmen who first came ashore on the Kent coast in 449AD
  • Up to 200,000 believed to have crossed the North Sea to Britain, pillaging and raping after Romans left

 It may come as a shock to those fond of quoting a world cup triumph and the outcome of two wars as signs of British superiority.

Scientists say that around half of Britons have German blood coursing through their veins.

Anybody who paid attention in their history lessons knows that tribes from northern Europe invaded Britain after the Romans left in around 410AD.
