    Right. You’re talking nonsense by the look of it.

    Maybe in another millenia or five. Right now, I think having a one world government would be both impossible and very dangerous.

    By the way, it's "per se", not "per say". Per se means "by itself" (a meaning usually better served by a word such as "intrinsically"). Per say is a mangled mix of languages that might possibly be used as a slightly shorter but much more clumsy way of saying "by speaking".

    I've always thought as European to be from anywhere in Europe except the UK :p

    Scottish.

    (Not so) Great Britain, Little England and their isolationist attitude can do one.

    Born in England, consider myself English, have Irish Citizenship too as a result of being part of the Irish Diaspora.

    I’d go with British, born and lived in Essex all my life.

    It's Britain's future (based on the direction we're going) I'm more concerned with, rather than it's history.

    You say that as if it's somehow a bad thing? Take a quick look around and ask yourself if maybe a bit of "subversion" might not do some good

    Why are you going out of your way to subvert our way of life? (Your words)

    Well, you could read your own comments in this thread, i.e. read 'your words'. This seems rather ... obvious, no? Do you remember what you said and what it implies about you? To borrow a horror film analogy, the calls are coming from inside the house.

    A bit early to be hitting the Buckfast, no? You've posted that twice in the last hour to the same person :D

    Depends on the options on the form in filling in. That's only time I think about it

    Why do people get so flustered If someone describes themselves as English.

    Do you just jump to nationalistic cliché in your head automatically?

    I find this a very British attitude, Brits are so quick to self deprivation. Is that the right word. My English is actually getting worse. I can feel it. :p

    Honestly it is just a place where you register a birth.

    It doesn't culturally follow you will be English/British otherwise we wouldn't have so many lunatic bombers/stabbers doing their thing in the name of far away lands and religious bs.
