No offence taken.

I undoubtedly have North Germanic (in the linguistic sense) ancestry. Dupuytren's Contracture is a very reliable indicator.

I had surgery on the little finger of my right hand a few years ago. Now getting serious issues on my left hand which will likely require surgery. Already been referred to a plastic surgeon.

On a longer time scale, it seems very likely that the western Celts came from what is now Germany. Gaulish was a Celtic language; Breton still is. Celtic was still spoken in what is now the Czech Republic around 2000 years ago, before being supplanted by West Germanic and West Slavic.

A plausible theory has that Germanic was originally a Creole formed from Indo-European and a now lost indigenous language.

Independent of Brexit, U.K. is a great nation. We will tackle down all issues together, for sure. I need to eat more fish!

We need to meet again, as soon as I get the second dose I would like you to come here, for some traditional Portuguese codfish.

No, that's the Scots. They come from Alba.

I'm not even shocked, which is so sad. I wonder if any EU country is doing the same to UK citizens.
