The English usually don't care but bearing in mind that the scots were at war with the English for centuries it kind of understandable when they get pissed off. I had an American acquaintance once who insisted on referring to the island as England, so I started saying he was from Alaska, using the it's the biggest part argument! I myself was born & raised in England but all my paternal heritage and half my maternal heritage is Scottish, hence I consider myself British not English, I mean seriously it was only about 300 years ago that we unified.

With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

So, would that make the mayor a homosexual from zoophile?
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

No, he was responding to my post. I think there was something lost in translation, literally.
