Is it daft aye , so the tories didnt impose the poll tax on scotland a year before england and wales and then not bother to rebate everyone when it was abolished ?

They didnt shut down our coal and steel and ship building ?
was that just all a myth too ?

Despite Spanish claims of sovereignty, residents have resisted the idea. In 1967, they voted against Spanish sovereignty in a referendum, then joint UK-Spanish control was rejected in another 2002 vote; both results were overwhelming.

Although 96 percent of Gibraltarians voted to remain in the EU during the Brexit referendum, it is set to leave the bloc when the UK does in 2019.

Prime Minister Sanchez says any deal Spain agrees to must include clear language that states Gibraltar's future is a bilateral issue between London and Madrid, not something to be negotiated at the EU level.

Spain threatens to vote No on Brexit deal over Gibraltar

Who cares about the people and their wishes anyway? Fck the Irish, Fck the Scottish, Fck the Gibraltarian and remember the Victorian era of Nuland for a second. Any takers?

Leave "won", eh?

maybe read a little of the history of that rock and see who you think it belongs to.
and use the grey matter a bit.
theres not really an ancient population .
you cant farm a rock .
no resources apart from rock and seabirds.
human life needs logistics and resources.
the business of living isnt all about ideals and 'rights'

oh and you didnt reply to my comment earlier....didnt like it but have no rationale to support your position?

British is just the name of the empire and it died , we arent british its an ideology of sorts !
You maybe English , British if you feel , but I am not British , I am Scottish


, so you are saying there were no Scots ?




That's exactly what i am saying. We were always taught that the Celts invaded and took over from the Beaker People. Modern genetic findings (as well as archeological discoveries) actually show this never happened. There was no injection of Celtic DNA into our make up. It was a cultural rather than physical invasion. As such, notions of Scottishness, Englishness, etc are bogus when discussing the inhabitants. It is appliccalbe when discussing national identity in that seperate kingdoms evolved. However, fundamentally, we are pretty much all the same peoples. And that also goes for Ireland. Some may have more anglo-saxon, others more Viking, etc, but we all share a majority genetically.

no i am quite serious
its important to examine our preconceptions.
trash in = trash out
belief is important in the sense of cohesive social units i.e. nationality
but it can be damaging if history is interpereted incorrectly esp. as its already written by the winners
for he who controls the past controls the present, and through that perception the future.
almost any version of ww2 has propaganda from divers source
thats a good example because we still get this emotive propaganda thrown at us all the time.

Aye im not debating the celtic origins , its a cultural movement , genetically we are all mongrels on earth!

but I am scottish as I was born here and as far as I know my family come from scotland from Buckie and other places in the highlands , as my dads side is the morrison clan I think they were islanders and my mums side are all cattle farmers and fishers from Buckie !
However in my grans on my mums side my great great great grandmother came to Ireland first with the Spanish fleet!
So im not here debating the genetic aspects of our shared gene pools as a species!

Im saying I am not in any way shape or form British! as I dont assign to being british in my identity
In fact I oppose it!

Id be happy to be in a Union with England if it meant we abolished the model we currently have which only seeks to undermine the human spirit and put profit before people and planet!

if we went our own ways then joined in Union once we had our # together ! id be ok with that
but like im saying I am not british and never will be
