10,000 years ago small tribes of people crossed the land that is now covered by water and that we have called the English Channel. Ever since then, we have absorbed so many cultures.
The Flemish, The Celts, the Romans, the Vikings, the French, the Dutch, the Jewish, the Caribbeans, the Indians, the Pakistanis, the Polish and so many more.
A mongrel nation makes for a healthier nation. A more diverse nation. A nation that not only copes with the world, but adapts to it and makes the best of what is thrown at it.
If we can take anything from the last two weeks, perhaps it has shown us we had, just maybe, forgotten that.
