Why do some people seem so defensive about origins? If we go by the written evidence, it seems to favour England as the haggis home. Seeing how its a common slur against Scots, you could see it as a handy point to use against prejudice.

Who is being defensive, other that you ?
It is well know , and has been for many centuries , that haggis , both the sausage pudding , and the word , have origins beyond Scotland .

This fact of history is obviously new to you and to the authors of the fluffy magazine pieces . All of you need to learn how to live with your intellectual deficiencies

But beyond Scotland isn't quite the same as English is it? Is the BBC not a reliable source for the first published haggis recipe?

Just as Burn's dialect came from England, the haggis might have come northwards into Scotland too.

This well know fact will come as a shock to you .
The publishing of a recipe in not that same a the origin of a food dish .

Heart wrenching as it is to you , you will have to accept that the English ancestors did not 'invent' haggis .

Maybe they did though. It doesnt mean they didn't does it? It's evidence in the favour of an English origin.
