Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The concept even in Scotland of "National Culture" is all a bit shortbread tin to be honest. The idea that an oil refinery worker off Aberdeen, a crofter in Uist and a sheet metal worker in Glesga have much in common is a bit silly. Heck, even in Glasgow, half the people support England/Germany and the other half support Ireland!

Nevertheless, most Scots would identify, first and foremost, as Scots. I'd imagine that most of them, too, would be a bit insulted at their national identity being reduced to a "little quirk", as Mr Weber would describe it.
Your reply to a post about "National Culture" was a totally irrelevant post about "National Identity" so I assume you now agree there is no such thing as "National Culture"?
