‘Scottish, British or both?’ | C. Currie- Scots Politics

Why should they have to lose their British identity if Scotland votes “yes” in 2014? If they can feel Scottish and feel pride in that identity while Scotland remains in the UK, then surely they could continue to feel joy at their Britishness were Scotland to go it alone. Scotland is part of Britain just as it is part of Europe and part of the world; independence wouldn’t change that, just how the country is governed. Scots would still be British, and would continue to have a right to feel proud of that, even if the meaning of the term “British” were altered slightly.
