    Or if you prefer something from another period, there's this. But whatever, we need to bring back the one true English unsullied by these degenerate times.

    Angles and Saxons and Jutes forever

    The poor Jutes always get left out of it.

    If they hadn't been we could have had the Anglo-Jaxon period or the Saxon-Jangles.

    Both of whom could have been backing musicians in a house band: "On horns we have the incredible Mr Anglo Jaxon, and on bass the rhythm maestro himself Mr Saxon Jangles" :guitar:dum-dum doo-doo-doo da-da :guitar:

    Is that from Beowulf? If so, I think the hero was a Danish immigrant.

    Nah. The Anglo part messed up the SBC that Alfred the Great had going on. The Normans didn't help either, but I'm not here to call the Normans empty headed, animal food trough wipers who are the sons of a hamster.

    Since you emigrated, the BBC has streamlined its services and no longer provides any content requiring journalism. It now broadcasts government press releases, provides an uncritical platform for ministers and the output is decorated with copious amounts of trivial diversionary pieces.
