Dave, East Sussex England wrote: the gradual eradication of "All" Northern European Culture and Customs.
Apols for rewinding three months, but I'm struck by this idea that there is a Northern European
culture. (And that Cherbourg would not be part of it!) Would this culture perhaps be based on a lighter pigmentation of skin, blue eyes, and other features commonly associated with the Aryan race? Or is it more about opposition to that devil in the Vatican?
Either way I'd be interested to know where Dave draws the border. My hunch is that he'd be happy to make room in his conception of the North for catholic Bavaria and certain moustached Austrians, but not so much for the denizens of Brussels or the diamond traders of Antwerp with their funny names ending in -stein.
