    Just for starters...

    The Scots have a social conscience and the English don't!

    You're confused between nationality and ethnicity.
    English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh is their nationality.
    White, European, western, (British even, possibly, although that could also be a nationality) or whatever category you want, is their ethnicity.

    You may be right, Foreigners often refer to those originating from UK, NI and Ireland, as English, or British.
    But that is not relevant to this discussion.


    It's a collection of islands


    Your suggestion is nonsense.

    How far does one need to look, before suggesting that the ethnicities are the same?

    I thought you claimed that the Irish created Scotland? Which way round was it?
    Did the Scots own part of Ireland, or did the Irish create Scotland? :confused:

    An identity is different from an ethnicity, and different from a nationality.
    You're interposing different terminology.
    Basques can have a different identity to Spanish or French, even though they share an ethnicity and a nationality.

    Poetic words from some time ago...

    "People are people, so why should it be
    You and I should get along so awfully?
    People are people, so why should it be
    You and I should get along so awfully?

    So we're different colours and we're different creeds
    And different people have different needs
    It's obvious you hate me though I've done nothing wrong
    I've never even met you, so what could I have done?

    I can't understand
    What makes a man
    Hate another man
    Help me understand"

    If only everyone didn't get so uptight about the ethnicity, gender, sexuality, etc of others, and saw them for the individuals that they are.

    And before anyone launches into a string of accusations, I do not get uptight, and I'm not obsessed with ethnicity, gender, sexuality, etc.
    I get uptight about hatred, division and discrimination shown towards others for their differences.

    Why don't you contact the census and tell them that there are no distinct ethnicities in the UK.
    LOL.
    The recommended ethnic groups are:

    White
    • English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish or British
    • Irish

    Because that is not what I'm suggesting.

    So will you tick the Ulster protestant ethnoreligious option?
    :rolleyes:
