A Big F You

Well you kind of argue against yourself here don't you? The English have a "huge" gap compared to the Celts...yet you're saying (correctly) that this is both variable among individual English people and across different areas of England.
Making my point that the very concept of the English ethnicity (like...all ethnicities) is one of cultural assimilation and mixture. Even in areas where the genetic legacy of the Germanic tribes and Vikings is stronger...none of those groups were the English either.
The English culture formed from the varying Germanics, Danes, and Celts swirling.
One can't present the story of the English as one of foreign colonials supplanting natives.
