Scottish.

Around 30-35% of Scottish people identified themselves as Scottish only and a further 30-35% Scottish 1st then British 2nd in a poll round about the time of devolution.

Of all the British people I have come across in my life, none of them have referred to themselves as British.

I come from Wales. If that is classified as a country, that is where you come from.

Usually i just have a problem with the ignorant U.S citizens who don't seem to know their arse from their elbow.......that's why they elected a monkey.

Almost every European I've come across knows Wales - Le Pays de Galles etc

Distance is not an excuse.

I know all the American states.....

EDIT: I believe that reading some of these posts, i can put the English in the ignorant category too - i know, its shocking.....we have sheep and cows!

I'm an American, and I've always heard people I've met over here describe themselves by one of the first options.

I didn't vote in the poll though.
#18
i'd say England because NATIONality implies NATION and Britain isn't a nation so to speak.

I thought it was part of Britain, the British Isles, but not the United Kingdom.

I'd say British. I don't know why, I just would.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Irelead is part of the British Isles, but Great Britain is just the larger of the two (y'know the one with Scotland, England, and Wales). Whether being British refers to the British Isles or just Great Britain is for you lot to decide.

English. I was born in England, so that makes me English. Plus saying British makes you just boring, even if my passport is a British one.

For clarification:

Britain - England, Scotland, Wales
UK - England Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland

If I were in a place where I could be targeted for hatred for being British I'd say I'm Scottish, which isn't untrue as I'm half Scottish half English. If I were sure I'd be safe I'd say I'm British, if asked for further elaboration I'd explain.

Of course I have to go through this on a regular basis as I do live abroad. Fortunately I've never been subjected to bad treatment due to my nationality, which isn't surprising to be honest.
#30
I'm from Northern Ireland and I always call myself Irish.

Nothing symbolic or anything, it's mainly because you tend to get treated better abroad if you're Irish and you have an Irish passport (we have the choice of having either an Irish or a British passport) for some reason.
