Aqueduct full of wine for the evening, another with coffee flowing for the morning. That would be actual heaven.

Probably would, if it were female.

The word 'indigenous' refers to the notion of a place-based human ethnic culture that has not migrated from its homeland, and is not a settler or colonial population. To be indigenous is therefore by definition different from being of a world culture, such as the Western or Euro-American culture.So does this mean being born a human and being indigenous to the plant earth,can i drive the outrageous bus?

In answer to the question originally posed, who's driving the outrage bus depends on who's outraged at the time. We've all had a go

Well by woke standards a person only needs to have a tiny percentage of indigenous ancestry to be considered indigenous. Or does this not apply in Britain? And if not why not?

I did one of those DNA swab things.

I'm an Anglo-Celtic-Viking. It's pretty ****ing cool when you think about it.

Apparently you know more about "woke" than me, I am unfamiliar with this concept of a tiny percentage. Indigenous groups are just that, groups, not a single unit, they are many and varied, and each has its own rules, systems and cultural norms and procedures for membership.
What you mention sounds like the "one drop" rule, which is part of the white supremacists doctrine.
Although I suspect you are conflating cultural and ethnic groups with racial groups.

Why is it a bus though? I would have thought a bulldozer would be more satisfying.

Do bulldozers come with whopping great spikes attached to the front? Just curious

I don't see why not. All the ones that the Little Lion had that I used to step on in the middle of the night in bare feet seemed to have them.

I like the Celtic bit (Scottish but Irish background to the Scottish bit), but probably just about prefer the English bit over that.

The Viking bit would always win though, who doesn't want to be a Viking or do Viking things like grow a big beard and treat people, especially women, with respect in foreign lands.

Yeah but the Angles were a load of Germans before they all showed up on our island with their beer and sausages, stealing our jobs and housing

Well they were very good at rowing, so handy to have on the team. Also, they conquered Normandy, and the Normans later conquered us, thereby bringing good butter to Our Island Story.

Are we all comfortable with the fact the Anglo bit is German? Because I very much am. Whilst a 'proud' (lol) Brit, I think the Germans on the whole are a super bunch and it's a super country. The German influence on the Brits is only a good thing.

The French however, well, they can take their onion, garlic and baguettes and.....
