The study carried out by genealogy website Ancestry obtained DNA samples from participants through saliva-based home testing kits.

The technique allowed researchers to trace the ethnic make-up of people as far back as 500 years.

The results of a test of two million people around the UK showed that on average......

In England, the average citizen is 37% British, with a smaller Irish heritage of 20%.

Scots are significantly closer to the Irish, with a 43.84% Celtic share mixed with 26.18% British, 13.05% from Europe west, as well as a Scandinavian element of 7.19%.

The Welsh have a more even combination, with an average British stock of 36.15%, compared to 31.99% Irish.

N. Ireland is made up of 48.49% Irish (Celtic) and 23.64% British (Anglo-Saxon).

So does that mean that when the usual racist posters come along here later on tonight moaning about immigration, we can tell them that they need to "go back to where they came from" before they ask everyone else to?

I would be very surprised to see any of the far right in here. There really is no such thing as ethnically British (Anglo Saxan is the closest we've got as the true early Britons were celts) as demonstrated by the survey, so all of their arguments are null and void from the get go.

British people are people from great Britain. if you are ethnically English. Scottish or Welsh then you are a British. English,Scottish, Welsh are the native ethnic groups. why do you think on the census they do every 10 year there is no option to have a black English or black Scottish? it's the same reason a white person in south Africa wouldnt claim to be a zulu

You are confusing ethnicity which is a social & cultural construct with race & genetics which has no element of influence or choice. Ethnicity is nation & tradition based and since it is socially determined is always at least partially self constructed.

If you were found years ago by the Zulu as a tiny white baby and had no contact with other people would you be any less Zulu than them by the age of 30? Of course not, you would be ethnically Zulu but genetically caucasion.

If I found a kitten in a crate of oranges would it be an orange?

If I compare fruit to animals during a conversation about race and genetics, would it make for a plausible argument?
