Really, whether Scotland or England, it's all UK. What is this harted all about?

And the unusual is that the Welsh also have a dislike for the English. But when England plays at a Football world cup, the Welsh do show support for England. The Scottish always support the team that plays against England.

History, history is the mist common answer but the battles that have been fought between England and Scotland broke out thousands of years ago. We are 21st century now and as I hear from most friends is that nobody hates the English as much as the Scottish.

That's rich coming from the person who is only willing to date English, Welsh, Australians and New Zealanders.

I wouldn't say we hate the English...but there is some rivalry (which goes back a long time in history), so of course we like it when some other team beats them at football :p:

But, we don't really have anything against them personally (i.e. we wouldn't not speak to someone just because they are English...well i wouldn't anyway since 2 of my cousins are half-english.

Although, i've noticed we just don't really associate ourselves with England...lots of scottish people would call themselves "Scottish" instead of "British", including myself, because we like to be part of our own country! Silly really :p:

Bit of an overgeneralisation.

1. My best friend is English.
2. I supported England at the world cup.
3. I would define myself as British, but i'm ALSO Scottish and very proud of my family's roots here.
4. Some Scots may dislike some English people, remember also that many English dislike the Scots.

So yeah. /thread.

From my personal experiences, all Scottish people have anger management issues.

I am Scottish and have nothing against the English; even supported them in the World cup. I would prefer someone from the UK to win something over another country :woo:

Speaking as an English person who lived in Scotland for 4 years I can say that this isn't the case at all! There's a bit of friendly banter but I've never experienced any real hatred.

For some reason your signature made me laugh, because after reading translating your post, I had to wonder what the rest were like.

I have scottish family and never known anybody there to not like english. when it comes to sports everybody will naturally divide and support their own if they are competing but thats completely different to not liking us as people

It's all just banter, i don't think any scottish people genuinely hate the english, its all just a bit of fun supporting the opposite team and teasing people for having english roots. Nobody really means any harm by it.
