if you wrote "ask most people in England if they're European..." then I'd agree with you, but you didn't, so I won't.

Eh? By default, we are British. You mean side with the English. Scotland is extremely close to the European sense. If Scottish devolution does go through, it'll become instantly more entrenched as a fully-fledged member of the EU than it ever was as part of the United Kingdom.

Try? He speaks better English than 1/2 of the English speaking world. I used to race with a lot of Northern Europeans. Those guys had a better grasp and spoke clearer English than the damn Scots. How many shows do we have to sub title here in the states because we can't understand those north of England? Love it.
