Oh yeah, please demonstrate that, and explain us why German and English are so different, phonetically and grammatically from Norse languages.

If you want to debate British history after the formation of Scotland, then that is a matter for a different thread.

But the answer is, because you became Latinised

Not at all, we know old Saxon, High Old German and Low Old German, and they exhibited very specific differences from Old Norse. Norse is definitely NOT the ancestor of Westic and Ostic Germanic languages, even if it's in the same extended family.
