BREXIT / British Politics thread in Politics and World Events Posted March 15, 2017 17 minutes ago, jazzyjan said: We can't compare Scotland to America. The USA has different states but they all make up the one country and call themselves American. Scotland is their own country. They may form the United Kingdom with England, Wales and Northern Ireland but all are seen as being distinctly different as nations. I class myself as British and we are officially British citizens. Britain has been together before most of Europe even existed and the US as we know it. While each parts keeps its nations name they have been intertwined to create Britain.
