    Predictable response from a UK government department; blame others for their own failure to design correct something within a stated framework. Much like how this government insists that it’s the EU’s job to flex their position to accommodate something the UK voted for.

    Looking forward to the day Scotland frees itself from this ageing, dysfunctional, backward looking kingdom. 
    Don’t the Brits own a large chunk of land in Scotland and just let them sit there and rot?
    I saw a show years ago in PBS that showed a lot of places that were unkept and the local residents said that Brits owned them and don’t bother to even visit. 
    Wait, what?

    Scotland is part of the United Kingdom. Citizens of the United Kingdom are called British. What you just said was the equivalent of saying ‘don’t the Americans own a large chunk of land in Nevada?’
    Scotland is also a country and people who live there are Scots. It’s not the same analogy as Nevada. 
    Nevada is also a state and people who live there are Nevadans. Scotland is a country in name only for for the most part, basically on par with states of the United States. Besides some international sporting events and leagues where the constituent countries of the UK are represented separately, on the international level, there is one country and it’s called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

    In any case, that wasn’t my main point anyway. People from Scotland are British.
    Yet it is a country, with its own cultural identity. Being a country and the culture that goes along with it is not on the same level as being one of fifty US states. People the world over can identity and describe Scots in a split second. The same cannot be said of Nevadans. Scotland is currently ruled by Britain, but certainly has not always been ruled by Britain. 
    Scotland is not ruled by Britain, it is part of Britain.  This has always been the case, even before the Acts of Union.  Britain is the island (Great Britain to be specific, but no one talks about Little Britain, aka Ireland, or Lesser Britain, aka Brittany any more)

    Scotland is a constituent country of the United Kingdom. 

    Saying parts of Scotland are owned by Brits is a very strange thing to say.
    I'm tempted to say Culloden but I won't ;)  Ooops...
    Sasserach  :p

    You’re still ignoring my point which is the fact that Scottish people are British.
