Nicola Sturgeon finally begins the process of separation!
'other regions of the UK'


That's the problem in a nutshell. Scotland has never been a region of the UK.

It's fairly insulting actually

Give over, you are being pedantic for pedantics sake!!!! Any part of a whole entity can be referred to as multiple things, such as "parts" as I just called them, regions is relevant, countries is relevant in some cases, pieces would even work, areas, sectors, districts, neighborhoods can all be used to describe part of something bigger.

Sorry SCO!! You "pulled" that same description quite a while ago and were suitably enlightened. It is a unionist line, pure n simple, and I can perceive the logic from a backer of the United Kingdom, which you have previously professed in another thread. Come up here to Scotland and try that same line and you'll discover that Scotland is strongly regarded as a sovereign country within the UK. Indeed I'd go further and say you'd likely "get a sair face" from certain Scots who would not tolerate that kinda nonsense and your word "pedantic" could well be uttered through broken teeth as you realised too late that you "crossed a red line" and just failed a reality check!! A lesser punishment would be a brusque correction in no uncertain terms and move on!! I'd just call it "treading dangerous ground" huhhhh!!

Here is what I said:

"Whenever you have a big slice of both the population and money residing in one region that will always be the case but I don't see it as only an anti-Scottish thing, it applies to other regions of the UK as well."

I call bullshit on your response, its being pedantic. Please how would I rephrase that sentence to include a word that does not offend you?? I am not referring to Scotland as anything, I am referring to the existence of other parts/regions/sections etc etc etc of the UK that suffer from the power and money residing in the SouthEast!! The word "other" tells you I am not referring to Scotland, but how would I label other parts of the UK??

Oh well! Fair enough SCO! Lets not play on words eh! I can perceive you've changed your previous view that Scotland is a region of the UK but it is indeed a sovereign country whose population, if it voted unanimously to break away from the Union, they would not need any permission from parliament to do it - it would be a sovereign right to self-determination, unlike a region although on a separate topic I will say that I empathise with the plight of the Catalan people in their quest to break from Spain as an independent region/country but Catalonia was in fact historically an old independent kingdom (Kingdom of Aragon and County of Barcelona) that was invaded and taken over by Spain!! The language, culture and "roots" are noticeably different in Catalonia.
