Got about thirty seconds in and noticed that the video was massively incorrect.
It called the UK a “country of countries” this is incorrect rather a “nation of nations” or a “state of nations” would be more accurate.
In addition to this the video said that each of these countries are sovereign, technically they are not Scotland for example is not a sovereign state
and neither is England however the United Kingdom of Great Brittan is a sovereign state. To some this may sound like semantics but the significance is
really quite important.
Further in more inaccuracies that are actually culturally offensive claiming that each of these “countries” don’t like each other. We only
don’t like each other when it comes to football and ruby yet the video claims that we don’t like each other and advises against calling us
“British” I would always rather be called “British” rather than Scottish also we don’t think the English are “colonial slave drivers”.
Ohhh and wales does not have a devolved parliament and I don’t think Northern Ireland do they have “Assemblies” only Scotland had a devolved
parliament. It is also wrong to say that only people from the republic of Ireland call themselves “Irish”, try walking into a Belfast pub and
telling them that they are all “British” and not “Irish” and you will probably not be walking anytime soon.
I don’t know about the rest of the video but I spotted a few inaccuracies, whoever made this has never spent any time in the UK.
