"BTNG - If your parents were Scots and Welsh, that makes you Scots & Welsh, not English at all."

It is surely absurd to say to someone born and brought up in England that he is not English at all? If he doesn't equate with being Scottish or Welsh then as I said previously to him people will self identify as they please. We can't dictate what other people are. Just because someone's parents aren't English it doesn't mean that they aren't.
