RE: Newbie from Scotland
Good point. I wonder what the ratio on this forum is of English people living in England compared to living abroad.

Wonderful.

Here's my humor thread, which I haven't been updating for a while ... anyway, read from the back if you like it, and totally ignore the OP please.

Ooh, dangerous ground here. An Englishman is English first and British second.
Tell a Scotsman he's English and you'll likely end up with a Glasgow kiss.

I didn't say British, I said Britanian, referencing the Roman province Britannia which covered most of the island, including much of modern Scotland.
It seems far more regal and dignified to me than splitting all of your UK commoners up into segmented peoples. Yes

True but some of us insist on being forever identified with our separate countries. Doesn't bother me but it really bothers others.
I shall henceforth be known as Brittanian. I like it.

And just in case you're wondering, FT, a Glasgow kiss involves a Glaswegian's forehead and the more vulnerable parts of the recipient's face to be followed by a "malky". Also known as "a right good kicking". But we'll buy you a beer afterwards. Big Grin

On somebody who's not myself.
