I disagree. While England was under Roman occupation it doesnt mean everybody who is now English is of Roman stock. Many of the natives remained in England and some may have bred with them but many wont have. Also, England, Scotland and Ireland have been invaded by other groups, such as vikings, so there is no pure heritage. The Celts originate somewhere in the east, they are not native to the UK, so when Scots and Irish claim they are pure celts they are basically saying they belong to a culture that is not native to Britain.
