Maid Marian, you beat me to it. I'm not sure if Boltonstani is in Central England or not, if it is, he's gonna faint.

Central and Southern England, 40% 'froggy French,' 11% Danes, and 9% Belgian.

Still, the Captain claims it's 99.7% Western Oriental Gentlemen today.

I believe Boltonstan is in the Caliphate of 'hey you' who according to Kong is a gov employee, well he gets his Giro via them so he must be.

Hi Marion.
That's an interesting fact, especially as I was recently told by my Dr that I have Viking ancestry, no wonder no one could understand what I was saying when I used to be drunk.
Cheers Des

I'm sure the good Captain can take it in his stride. He's surviving his present neighbours isn't he? Mind you, I suppose he gets away from them often enough.

Brian can still keep his "K" and change his name to "Captain Kraut".

If the Captain is from the North, as Maid Marian said. He's 40% "froggy French."

Cheers, Rodney

Good Job I emigrated before the study came out, I'm still me.

Cheers, Rodney

I have done my family tree on both Mothers and Fathers sides. They both go back over 1,500 years, with a little Celtic Welsh thrown in from the side., all the way to the early pre Viking days in Ormskirk.
NO froggy french or kraut soiling my DNA. I am 100% Brit.
When I joined my cruise on Friday 13 February, the Matre D on our first dinner on sailing, put us on a table with TWO germans and TWO froggy speaking Belgians. MY Nightmare.
We were off like a shot,
Where is that Matre D?
I played hell with him, He soon found me a table for two. He was a Dutchman. he said he didn't like the germans and belgians either.
We became friends after that.
