Can you guys settle an argument for me? The other day my buddy and I were discussing our nationalites and such, and he said that he was Scottish. So I said "Doesn't that make you British?" And he doesn't think it does. But the country of Scotland is part of Great Britain so I don't see why it doesn't make sense. Anyone know the answer?

He's british. The Channel Islands are meant to be British, but are influenced by the French and are closer to France. Don't know, they are special.

Where about in Scotland? I was born in Glasgow myself, grew up in a village near Balfron called Killearn.

seeeee im scottish too, and i can understand his reasoning.
alot, and i mean alot, of scottish people seem to completley disassociate themselves with the english, because they don't like the idea of england making scotland ireland nd wales their proverbial politcal "bitch".
so either he's very politcal or he's **** at geography
#11

#12
He's British. Either that or he's not really Scottish, doesn't know what "British" means and is just bull****ting you.

Well, he's probably American, really...


But, it's a touchy subject, especially when N. Ireland's involved. I suggest not bringing it up.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

He is technically british but some Scottish people don't assosicate themselves with the English. I usually say i'm Scottish. It's damn annoying when some idiot presumes your English if you say you're British.
I mean, do I look anything like an English person? Especially with my kilt, my ginger uncontrolable hair and running after a haggis

Maybe he's an illegal alien and he hasn't revised his facts properly.

To clear this up:

British = Citizen of "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland"(UK)

United Kingom (UK) - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

(Great) Britain - England, Scotland and Wales

Ireland - Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland

I'm not sure man, usually us Americans don't know unless your family still lives there or recently came over, you know what I mean? Since you can't exactly be American as an ethnicity, everyone associates themselves with where their ancestors came from. So nobody, and I do mean nobody, walks around saying they're American to other Americans. Thats only when you are talking to people who live in other countries. For example I tell people I'm German, French, Irish, Italian, Swedish, and Poruguese, although technically I'm American.

Technically British, but no-one would say that ahead of their proper country, i'm English, Scots are Scottish ect....They're only British when they want 'our' money or we want 'their' dwindling oil or tennis players.

P.S. I hope the American Haverhill is better then the festering tip that the English one is.

Haha I've had a few people tell me that Haverhill, England is awful. My city isn't too bad, its nice and big with lots of stuff to do. We have a lot of Hispanics though kinda overcrowding the city. Theres also a Haverhill, New Hampshire buts in the middle of nowhere, and a Haverhill, Florida which is just a regular town. My Haverhill is the best in the world!

Well you won't get much competition from ours, I find it hard to believe there have been at least 3 cities named after it though

Come to think of it, it was probably me talking to you about this before *shrug*

Could have been I suppose, but whatever. Why is Haverhill in the UK so bad anyway?

It's an overspill town, full of dated council housing, it's got a very poor variety of shops and entertainment, poor transport links, and is generally occupied by none to friendly people.

Also, it has this:



Which looks interesting in that picture, but in real life it looks like a dustbin turned upside down and stuck on a roundabout.

Too bad the Americans will have no idea what a roundabout is.

Even if you tell them it's a traffic circle, which is what they are called in the states.

Even when I saw one, I was like WHAT THE EFF
