After reading thisthread on Arrse, it made me think a little,

My brother and I are the only English within our family, half being from S,Ireland and the other half from the deepest, darkest, depths of the northern rural Scotland.

Scotland are better off within the UK status and it has been mentioned as a whole we stand a better chance fighting off the EU taking over our funds etc. But how would it affect us all as a whole. If Scotland were to move away from the UK status, would I need a passport to go and see my family? Would that mean in some way that part otf the familt that did move England have to gain a visa to stay?


What would actually happen?

An interesting question Jenny to which I must add.

My ex wife is a Scot, as is my Kirkcaldy born son who still lives with her in Fife. If they break away from the UK (heaven forbid but they just might be partisan enough - and mad enough to do it ! ) how would I stand as regards seeing my son - would I need visas' too. Could he still play for England if he wanted to ?
 
I'm English born, of a Welsh mother. I spent most of my naval career in Scotland and married a Scot. I stayed up here when I left the Pusser, and my daughter was also born in Kirkcaldy. (That being the nearest maternity hospital to Dunfermline, as they shut ours when Jack pulled out, so to speak)

I remember at the time of the referendum for the Scottish "wee hoose at the bottom of the hill", that the SNP leader said that anyone resident in Scotland at the time of independance could regard themselves as Scottish.

No disrespect, but not as long as my arse points downwards!

I regard myself as British.

We're all too intermingled now to class ourselves as different races. Cultures, maybe, but that's all dictated to us by the so-called "chattering classes".

Come the revolution, they'll be first against the wall.

Sorry Streaky but I do not wish to be classed as British.

I was born, remain, and will always be English.

As it says on my belt "British by birth - English by the grace of God"

I am mixed blood, English by birth and life etc but blood lines I wouldn't be counted.

My Grandma always said the English had the foot in the door with everything sand to be classed otherwise left you with the scraps.

MY mum's Auntie Rita was IIrsh, her husband was SAS during WW2. She had moved to London for a better life and money, however during WW2 they were cast aside with the 'ethnic' groups. Made to be illegal immagraints, this I never understood, her husband, southern Irish was on the front line for another country (England) and the Irish were still made to be the dirt.
 
I tend to regard all nationalism as bullshit these days.
It's just another weapon in the politicians' armoury to get what they want.

Who was it who said that "Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel"?

(Along those lines, anyway.)

I have no doubt that the same rules would apply in both directions to them that apply to Eire/Southern Ireland since Independence. Subject to security considerations,WW11, NI troubles, it has been free movement, employment and residencial rights.

The answer to the above from me is yes and yes. So I guess that makes me British first and English first. I just wish some others could come to the same compromise.

Just have to mention that we are/were all in the English navy! Just take a look at the White Ensign; St Georges cross with the union flag inserted. One up to the English I think.

Sorry guys since devalution, and all the flag waving from the North and west of England, I now consider myself as,
"English 1st, British 2nd, and European Never."
I was very happy to be British when we were all together, now I am as English as a Scot is a Scot.

What about the RED and BLUE ensigns?Nelson was an Admiral of the Blue, me ? Im of a barstad race as every other member of this country is.
 
So, dt number, you're saying you condone the break up of the British Isles, then?

I'm firmly of the opinion that divided we fall.
