England (and I speak as a Scots-descended Celto-/Anglophile) is actually a perfect example of something I think it might help if we all remembered more often: If you go back far enough, nobody's "indigenous".

Speaking as a Cro-Magnon, y'all need to get off my land.

Possibly even some players with ancestry in the old Danelaw, or who came over with William the Conqueror. Not forgetting my fellow Celtic Fringers. Even if they/we can be a bit wild.

I spent a little time in England and as far as I remember it was white Englishmen as far as the eye could see.

England not London then, I take it?  ;D

These days I do actually live in just about the whitest (not necessarily English) part of London. My son finds it weird when he goes out of London, seeing all the white people.

No, I only spent a few days in London, mostly Norwich and Whitehaven.
