    Basic history lessons for you young chap:

    "Sir Edward Richard George "Ted" Heath KG MBE (9 July 1916 – 17 July 2005) was a British politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1970 to 1974 and Leader of the Conservative Party from 1965 to 1975. Heath served 51 years as a Member of Parliament from 1950 to 2001. He was a strong supporter of the European Communities (EC), and after winning the decisive vote in the House of Commons by 336 to 244, he led the negotiations that culminated in Britain's entry into the EC on 1 January 1973. It was, says biographer John Campbell, "Heath's finest hour".[1] "

    Not only that, but back then, the 'Brexiteers' were mainly left-wing Labour MPs (Michael Foot, Tony Benn etc). Jeremy Corbyn's wishy-washy attitude to our membership of the EU stems from that background.

    That's because England (or rather London and the home counties) have largely had it their own way since parliamentary rule began in England, and thus have benefited most from political policies created, through Westminster control, and decisions taken by successive governments to prioritise English interests above those of the other countries making up the UK, and so unlike, say the Scots, have nothing to 'escape from'...

    Seeking fairness and equality, and wanting to divorce themselves from unfair and unjust Westminster rule, is what largely drives Scottish nationalism and the desire for independence. When you've been downtrodden and treated like second-class citizens for centuries by the *English* Westminster system, and now have the chance to escape and be in control of your own destiny, then it's only natural to want to take it!

    There is nothing racist or bigoted about that. However, some aspects of English nationalism, which is founded upon something quite different (often bigoted colonialism), is abhorrent and rightly loathed by those who've suffered at the hands of it.

    Amusingly, I'm banned from there. Which is a first, though I was banned from here for a week for posting a link to a Monty Python sketch.

    Indeed... If Ollie wants to own a forum and all its stored data, he'll have to put his hand in his pocket and do what I've done

    I think you will find if you care to look it up,that more money from the national economy per capita head is given to Scotland than anywhere else in the UK.

    Personally, I think we'd be (much) better off as a United Kingdom and as part of the EU. Looks like Boris and co will ensure that in a few years time we will be neither. What worries me most is Northern Ireland, where a modus vivendi was arrived at, after decades of sectarian violence, and which is now at risk because of Brexit. The arrogant, self-centred attitude of many English people toward the rest of the UK is one of our least attractive features.

    SPOT ON!

    And it says something for you, being English, that you're able to recognise and acknowledge it. It's what *irks* the Scots, Welsh and Irish like you wouldn't believe, and has been instrumental in creating the divided country we live in....

    But I'd say that the vast majority of said arrogance and self-centredness comes from the south of England/home-counties, which is why, in terms of independence, I'd happily take the rest of England with us (the Scots) and leave the arrogant and the self-centred assholes you mention to it
