@natbot That's a brilliant assessment of English identity and I think it's pretty much spot on. The English haven't quite separated "England" and "Britain". There is no English identity, only British - but with Britain defined from a bygone era.

@Murchie Yes, and it makes me believe that Scottish independence will just as beneficial for England as it is for Scotland. They can then get to define who they are on their terms (and they can stop dragging Scotland along with their narrative which has nothing to do with us!).

@natbot Yep. I think there has been a hesitancy to accept Englishness. It's mainly associated with noisy holidaymakers and thuggish football fans. I think the EU referendum helped claim that back, and is an attempt to redefine it. 

I suppose it's a bit like how we'd be ashamed of saying we were Scottish due to the stereotypes associated with it, but have fully embraced it now and have pride in it.
