Celt or Basque?

Read an interesting article today about our cultural and genetic heritage, which suggests that we are all Basques rather than Celts. The author says:-

Everything you know about British and Irish ancestry is wrong. Our ancestors were Basques, not Celts. The Celts were not wiped out by the Anglo-Saxons, in fact neither had much impact on the genetic stock of these islands

Stephen Oppenheimer then follows up this article with another, here, to expand his ideas further. Interesting stuff indeed.
