Talking History


You are aware aren't you that the term United Kingdom dates back to 1603 when the crowns of England and Scotland were united, a long time before the act of union.

And it was a Scottish King who came to the throne, James V (or VI - sorry can't remember) became James I of Great Britain.

I blame the Romans for the England/Scotland divide - yet another problem caused by Europe.....

Of course any decision to leave the EU would be followed in Scotland, it woulld be a national decision.

When you were a Vulcan pilot, did you only deter attacks against England, or the whole UK?
