Simon, you are being perverse, you 'know' what they told you about where you were born, you 'know' what it says on your birth certificate...OK I accept it probably does not say, "in a caravan under Chiswick Flyover".

I'm Welsh , my wife is English , our daughter was born in Barnet but has lived in Scotland since she was 2 years old , and our son was born in Inverness .
What nationality is our son as he's going through an identity crisis at the moment . If he was any good at football or rugby , he could play for any 3 nations .
I say he's Scottish .

Kod: I don't "get around it". Its just the way things are. The only time I have to show my passport and the visas is when I leave Europe. Otherwise, I'm a free man! Lets start a human trafficking consortium! Africa to Europe in one short exchange!

I think you'll find it's been tightened up now. Going out you don't need a passport, but coming back into the UK you tend to! We think everyone want to come over here.

CE: Yes. I agree. Leaving civilisation you are free to roam. But returning you must be prepared for a gloved finger up your anus. (unless, of course, you have money. Then even Russian billionaires can be assasinated on European soil, and Arab Oil-magnates can live the life they deny to the citizens in their own country)..

You must have some trick !! =P
I've been to 5 African countries and had to show my passport at each - coming in and leaving.

Kod: well maybe its my nationality, or my experience in travelling through foreign countries and experiencing all sorts of customs, legal and traditional, that counts, rather than a stamp on my passport. Do not ask me. Ask them.

Simon writes, "As you use the words "theory of evolution" your logic is silly!"
Here Simon is assuming what he needs to prove (but can't) - that theories are not real.
"Any theory can be shown to be wrong. How does evolution explain flight?" So Simon 'proves' his knowledge of science by asserting (wrongly) that evolution can't explain flight.
He finishes patronisingly, "William needs to study linguistics and general semantics then his use of words might becoe (sic!) more accurate!"
I have studied linguistics and semantics; I have a degree in philosophy.

Dear PH Williams, your son would appear to be Scottish and therefore British too.

If you think clearly and logically, then your nationality is an irrelevant, meaningless accident of birth by which you should set no store emotionally.

Good answer Chris...

Stop being silly Simone. U r a UKeydonkeylander dear, born in an NHS 'ospital in Feltham, raised in Ashford. Father: boxer and bodybuilder from Newkie-upon-Tyne. Not that it matters a toss.

I was born in England (to English parents), grew up in Edinburgh and live in Glasgow.

I tell everyone in Glasgow I'm from Edinburgh (they hate that more than they hate the English), when I'm in Edinburgh I say I'm English and when I'm in England I'm Scottish.

Exactly, Christopher. How can you feel proud of something you had absolutely no control over? Happy, lucky - perhaps, but proud? If you achieve citizenship in a country of your choice, maybe. I sometimes think that those who bang on inordinately about being proud to be (fill in nationality, ethnicity, inherited religion etc) may have nothing else to be proud of, but obviously, my third sentence applies. I also have to say that I have detected no signs of this inordinate pride in this thread - or any other - nor would I have expected to.

Stop using the verb to be and making deity mode statements...you may experience brief moments of wisdom.

Do you speak from experience Simon? How brief (and infrequent) are your moments of wisdom?
