I've left a message. That guy Calum from Glaschu, Alba is not making much sense.

Having a Celtic ancestry doesn’t make you Celtic – if it did then more or less the entire population of England, Western Europe, Southern Europe and (of course) all the people descended from immigrants originating in these historically Celtic regions in the Americas etc are just as Celtic.

Calum, Glaschu, Alba


Nobody said any different, i do disagree with the entire population of England being Celtic???? Parts of it, aye ok but most of it, definitely not.

Will Northumbria become “Celtic” again if some small groups decide to invent their own Celtic dialect using the historical sources we have in the form of Old Welsh spoken in northern England/Southern Scotland 1000-15000 years ago?

Calum, Glaschu, Alba

Cornish wasn't invented it has been and is what it is.

The Cornish language is an artificial invention and so is Cornish identity and the proponents of both are simply Englishmen in denial (something which, in the interests of fairness, I would also say about all non-Welsh speaking Welshmen and non-Gaelic speaking Scots and Irish).

Calum, Glaschu, Alba

Says Calum from Glaschu, Alba while posting in the English language. Very clever.

:sleep:

My suspicion is that guy speaks no Gaidhlig, and is a stirrer out to try and give Scots a bad reputation, because a few of us have been involved in Cornish related discussions.

Anyway, if the guy was to be accurate, it was Cumberland and Westmorland, not Northumberland who had the Celtic language last in the north of England - and some of the stolen countries along the Welsh border.

Jesus, confused Scots, meet them every day!!! Logic gets you nowhere with half of them.

The Brits have always been good at what's called the mind**ck.
