I don't apply nationalities to "boats" that's for dafties.

Why not.  They have to sail under a certain flag.

It is inevitable that one day soon the Great Man will become the First President of Scotland.

The Father of the reborn Scottish Nation.

Happy Birthday oor Eck

The steady and continuing devolution of powers to the Scottish parliament are something that, I assume, most here welcome, accept and don't wish to return?

Salmond helped to win those, for all of us.

Right. So the UK Government are dafties then?

As you're an ignorant fermer, I'll excuse your lack of knowledge about ships. They have to be registered for use at sea.

RRS Discovery's wikipedia page links to its Lloyds Register entry for 1934/35. It's listed as "British", built in 1901 in Dundee & with a home port of Stanley in the Falkland Islands.

How much more British do you want it to be?

I'm more of a "Spanish registered fishing vessel" than a "Spanish boat" kinda guy.

His old boy is going strong nearly 100.  Eck will live to 150.  Bookmark it.

So, even though he's fat, he may still outlive his old wife?

What a guy!

So, do you think Mo Farah is a "British passport holder" rather than a "British person" then?

This is starting to get a wee bit disturbing...

OK. So in Yoonloon's world, inanimate objects don't have nationalities. This would include items such as the UK Crown Jewels & the Union flag. Items that are often described as 'Quintessentially British"

However, note the way that Yoonloon equates 'foreign' ('Philippino') with 'cheap'. That's telling.

The sadddest point is that his narrow nationalistic Yoon worldview doesn't even acknowledge that the correct term would be 'Filipino'. That term would apply equally to citizens of the Philippines or to 'cheap' goods manufactured there.
