    Welcome to the site, MACB. My predictive spelling just tried to call you Macbeth. We don't get many witches here, though. so you should be fine. Be sure to say hello on the Introductions thread if you get a chance. Welcome again.

    Scottish, so Western Europe. Like a few other Brits have said, I don't consider myself European.

    Love Scotland. Would move there at a drop of a hat if I could find a job.

    PS: By Scotland I mean the Highlands!

    I'm also Scottish, though thankfully living in America... I consider myself American, and nothing but.
    The Scots certainly aren't Europeans; what they are is England's doormat, and deservedly so. Forget notions of Braveheart and nationhood, and Highland honor... what they've become is gutless socialists living in a Nanny State, tied to England's apron. It would cost us not one drop of blood to be liberated from English rule, simply vote to become a completely independent nation... and not even that is possible.

    Scotland isn't England's doormat. The previous two prime ministers were Scots (if you count Blair). Half the Labour government was Scottish at one point. Scots were very enthusiastic empire builders at one point. Somehow, many of them like to feel like they are victims now. It's not as if they want true independence anyway. They want to keep the Pound and stay in the EU, which means doing whatever Germany and France tell them to do.

    Kilts do remind me of a schoolgirl's uniform. However, I thought bagpipes were to torture kittens.

    Fine, but it's like saying by the USA I mean the Rockies.

    Not necessarily. I once worked with a guy who was a cross-dresser and he told me that he wore a kilt for social occasions.
    He was probably less than 5ft tall and when I suggested that perhaps he might be the cause of amused comment, he replied, ' My legs have received admiring glances.'

    After living in this country for 15+ years, I decided to take the plunge and applied for British citizenship. .. And took the citizenship test last month. Feel more British than anyone I know now that I know how many members Welsh, English and Scottish parliaments or juries have or when Thatcher was first elected an MP or how old was Mary when she became a queen... Not to mention the kind of paintings produced by Turner or music composed by Vaughan Williams.

    (5/100 college lecturers were able to pass this test)

    Congratulations, Scheherazade! That must have been a hard test if only 5 out of 100 can pass it. Or maybe they don't realize they should prepare for it.
