Good point about cashless society.  The way things are going leaves me feeling uneasy.  Same with ‘hate speech’ laws.

You're fine with the internet though.

My main reason for wanting to keep the Union is a sense of Britishness identity.

Let's turn the clocks back and have a more wholesome society.

With English grammar back on the school curriculum.

More cycle lanes please 

That looks a wee bit wishy washy from the Greens.  Looking to take (I assume) committee convenorships/ vice convenorships but are not part of an administration!

Still, good news.

It's a good question mate, and I'm not sure of the answer.

My main reason for wanting to keep the Union is a sense of Britishness identity.  I have that because of history, a sense of nationhood and the culture I've been immersed in most of my life.  I see Brits as a people.

I'm also right wing and conservative, so prefer keeping traditions such as the Monarchy, religious institutions and different types of hierarchy in tact as opposed to scrapping them.

If we had independence, then I'm not sure how much different the cost of living crisis and pandemic would be.  It will increasingly escalate due in large part to Scotland no longer having EU membership I suppose.

FTFY

Got no problem with people seeking a "sense of Britishness identity" and celebrating whatever that means to them. Dress up, speak with a pretend British accent and do whatever you like. Cosplay is an incredibly popular outlet and i'm sure your will have plenty of crossover with the Harry Potter stans and the futanari fanbase. Just play nice.

But what to dress up as? What symbols to use? Wait - this should help: all things deeply connected with and seen in 2020s Scotland. A post box it is - or is does cosplaying as an umbrella scream “British”?

Weird graphic, the doubling up of Union fleg and Pound signs suggests a limited pool of symbols. Telephone box and Routemaster bus are extremely dated no?

Turning a cup of tea into three items, that smacks of a Friday afternoon decision. The more i look the worse it gets. Are umbrellas a national symbol? The angel of the North would been better inclusion. imo

 

If you ask anyone outside the UK to give you an example of a British accent, you get shown an English accent.

Rangers fans wearing England tops is just a bit more honest about that.

It’s the same at Ibrox. Have you seen footage from Seville this week? Some fantastic man tits on show on the majority.
