What do feel like?( for those in the Uk)Watch
Do you feel British or just Scottish or Welsh or English?
I feel Londoner>Englishman>British
I do NOT feel European at all really-the English channel is there for a reason!
I always write English on forms that ask for nationality and it pisses people right off
I do consider myself british, but if you were to ask me where I come from, or what my nationality is i'd always say Scotland or scottish.
I am British by virtue of having been born in the nation Scotland which has been in union with the rest of the UK for over 300 years.
The United Kingdom exists as a nation then, a nation I was born within and a nation my anncestors were born within and who have settled in all parts of the UK.
I am Scottish yes but to not recognise that I also live within the United Kingdom and are a British citizen therfore BRITISH would be entierly foolish.
Again though I am British ONLY because I was born here it does not make me any more or less of an individual.
E.g An immigrant comes to England, and says they are English and defend Englishness, then they're English.
Those who come to the country, and dont respect englishness and people's right to express it, then they're not English.
Its not a status in any respect, its more of a personal feeling. *inserts scenario*
Someone comes from Pakistan, England in whatever circumstance ends up in a war with Pakistan, if that person starts protesting in England against it and start embracing Pakistan, then they're not English, or British. Simples as that.
I'd consider myself British first, English second. Though I am hugely proud of my city (London), too. I do believe it's the greatest city in the world.
I haven't really heard anyone more proud to be British than English !
