Quite frankly, who gives a s................... wether you're English or British or whatever? Personally, I would say if you were born in england, then you are both and should be proud of being both!
What's important is, we are all human beings and we all share the same planet!
Such petty squabbling about nationality really throws me, I just don't get it!
hmm and you've never got involved in any petty squabbles on here before have you

But What makes you english???
I am incapable of wearing a pukka Aussie bush hat without looking like a twonk.

I know, my wife has told me many times ... but still I persist.

So because you don't agree with the subject the petty squabling is pathetic. If you are happy to be called British then fine, I am not and that should also be fine.

That is so not NB
You wouldn't like her when she's really angry

I consider myself English because I was born there and my parents were too.
My hubbys parents were Irish and he was born in England and if he had to say, he would say he's British.
The only time I say British is on offical forms (because you have to).
But then again I don't give a t*ss, you take me as you find me

I think that we hear lots from disgruntled Scots, Welsh and Irish about control from London. I think it's about time the English stood up for themselves, found pride in being English and not British and voted for English independence.

Actually I buck the trend and write English for nationality even on all my immigration forms. Never ever been pulled up on it.

After 3 days of rain although we need it it's reminding me of English dull depressing sky already and wishing for sunshine. We supported Wales the other day as they are part of Great Britain and that's the passport we have as we haven't become Aussie citizens quite yet and look what happened they got thrashed....

It's bloody confusing, I tell ya!
You forgot the United Kingdom where they chuck Northern Ireland in as well.

Agree you should have the chance to be Northern like Ireland, Wales and Scotland as the namby pamby southeners think nothing exists after Manchester and that's if they even recognise Manchester.

The problem there is that you have no resources to sell on so independence might not be so appealing
