The British (serves 60 million)
Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
Anda let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.
Remove the Romans after approximateky 400 years
Add lots of Normam French to some
Angle, Saxons, Jutes and Vikings, then stir vigorously.
Sprinkle some fresh Indians, Malaysians, Bosnians,
Iraqis and Bangladeshis together with some
Afghans, Spanish, Turkish, Kurdish, Japanese
Then add to the melting pot.
Leave the ingredients to simmer.
As they mix and blend allow theis languages to flourish
Binding them together with English.
Allow time to be cool.
Add some ulity, understanding, and respect for the future,
Serve with justicee
Note: All the ingredients are equally important. Treating one ingredient better than another will leave a bitter unpleasant taste.
Warning: An unequal spread of spread of justice will damage the people and cause pais. Give justice and quality to all.
