both are 88% light eyes more than british aisles and Ireland
*Your statistics about light eyes in the British Islands seem about right. However concerning the "pure blue" question, it has already been established by the study made by the Division of Anthropology of Harvard University in the 1930's I believe, that in terms of pure light eyes, the Irish are equal to Scandinavians.

*According to a medical study on malignant melanoma in the Swedish and Norwegian populations in a period of almost 10 years (1991-1999).
The eye colour of these Scandinavians were as follows; blue eyes in Norway (50%), Sweden (50%), green/gray/mix eyes in Norway (39%), Sweden (36%), brown eyes in Norway (11), Sweden (14%).
The light-eyed class is 89% in Norway and 86% in Sweden. So the Irish and British are not that much different in light eyes from Scandinavians as some foolish people were making them to be.

If this was a study done by swedes then its most likely just BS for the Norwegian part of the study.

Are people still rambling on about how blue-eyed and light-haired British people are, or aren't?

Both ministries of Norway and Sweden were involved in the study. To the contrary of what you were saying, according to this study, Norway is blonder-haired than Sweden.

English germanic language? 40% of english come straight up from the Latin and greek.

English phonetics are heavily romance influenced, English is a hybrid language just like French or Romanian, they are included within family languages for mere courtesy.

here is an example of what german-speaking swiss look like:

They have very german-type of facial structures and features, and mostly lighter hair that british people lack.

typical english students have round celtic faces and mostly brown hair.
First of all, you do not even what has been described as "typical facial features" of the British people are definitely not like the so-called round faces.

Stop making me laugh again, you are so ignorant! The English language is a Western Germanic language and the closest language to English is Frisian. Actually the Anglo-Saxon people were kin to the Old Frisian people and both belonged to the Ingvaeonic Germanic group. Though during the Norman occupation, some French words were introduced in the English language, but the syntax and grammar of English remained Germanic. Though the syntax is closest to North Germanic languages such as Norwegian. This is a proof of the strong influence of Scandinavians (Vikings) in England. Perhaps this is why, it's so easy for Scandinavian people to learn the English language. In other words, the English grammar is much closer to that of Scandinavian languages than to German or Dutch.

There's actually a book written by Norwegian professor ( Jan Terge Faarlund) who are grouping English as a Scandinavian language. This is just an article referring to it. Read it, this might enlighten your ignorant mind!

English phonetics are definitely not Romance-influenced. I speak both English and French as well, so save your lies. French is a Romance, there might other words here and there borrowed, but the closest language to French is most likely Italian.

They look Germanic/Celtic, as do individuals from the Netherlands and northern Germany. JamesDean73/Traveler86 likes to use Welsh photos that cherry-pick the most Celtic features in bad resolution and lighting, then promote them as being English, Scots, Irish..........what's the difference?
Compare to the Dutch World Cup Team 1978

The idea that the English need to be predominately blond in order to be related to other northern European people is unfounded. JamesDean/RonnieColeman/Don Caballero has a false cartoon impression based on a foreigners view of Northern Europe.
