    Why would your accent turn heads? Are you sure it's not just your own insecurities giving off bad vibes? No Englishman should feel unsafe visiting anywhere in the British Isles. If anything it's supposed to be the natives scared of the visiting English, that's how it used to be (e.g. when we stormed through Nortern Ireland and showed them who's boss for a short while - no offence to Irish i am part Irish myself).

    Like a lot of people i am part Scots and English, the land is ours one and whole. I'm not sure about independance, but what i don't like this half assing around. Either they are independant or they're not, and if they're not then we need to establish absolute control possibly by force once and for all.

    We can't have Ireland or Scots thinking they have one up over English or vice versa, it's wrong. The enemy was out there, and it will be so again.

    Having heard tales from an ex Royal Navy friend of English people being glassed in bars in and around Glasgow for no reason other than the fact that they are English. Some of these bars were hives of activity for Sin Fein and the IRA. Consequently I suppose I may have what might be described as "insecurities". However, I'm quite sure I'm not "giving off bad vibes". Apart from not feeling quite at home I generally had very pleasant experiences in Scotland.

    Seriously, I wouldn't recommend going to these places and showing the locals "who's boss" that really would be "giving off bad vibes".

    Though I'm a generation or two removed from the old country (depending on which side of the family you follow) I feel a great affinity for the ancestral land for I choose to remember. I know various family members spoke fondly of England and missed it greatly. Family oral history and my own genealogical research reveals most of my lot came from Somersetshire and Dorsetshire on the spearside, while on the distaff, Staffordshire and Derbyshire. I've managed to renewed a few contacts with distant cousins over there and would dearly love to visit the old country one day.

    I come from Somerset. The Zider country.

    Glastonbury Tor.


    Glastonbury festival.


    Cheddar Gorge.


    Cheddar Caves.


    Where you could have met the famous Cheddar man.


    Exmoor.


    Not to mention that you can experience the best cider in the world. Stuff that will blow your head clean off.


    Then, whilst you are clean off your trolley, you can enjoy a local tune sung in pubs all round the working class areas of Somerset and Bristol.

    Just a Yank here, chiming in.

    I was in Scotland back in August/September (right Os? ). One night I was in Crieff drinking with some locals and after many pints, they started to go off on the English a little bit. I told them that I am part English....and part Scot too....and eventually they took me in as one of their own. The funny thing was that the most vocal of them all was a Rooney of Irish descent. Go figure.

    Anyway, my English ancestors were mainly from around Norwich & Southwold in East Anglia and a few from up in Yorkshire as well.

    Sumorsæte ealle! That would be the first place I would homage to on any future travels. . .I also have this genetic craving for scrumpy. A lot of my kin dwelt in the Quantock Hills area for a few hundred years and likely longer. Some of them are even mentioned in William Holland's diary published as "Paupers & Pig Killers". . .rather an amusing read.

    That's a common occurrence in Scotland. By far the most anti-English section of Scottish society are the Celtic or Hibernian supporting fans in the Glasgow and Edinburgh areas, who are overwhelmingly descended from Irish immigrants.

    The big dividing line in Glasgow for example is between the Protestant Scottish Rangers fans - who support the Union with England - and the Catholic Irish Celtic fans - who want independence for Scotland, and for Ulster to be incorporated into Eire.

    I take it the choices in the poll are the shires with boundaries set down by our forefathers and not the buggered about with versions set in stone by Whitehall in 1974?!

    I was born in Kidderminster, in Worcestershire. I lived there until a few months before my 6th birthday. Since then I've lived in Scotland.

    I still miss Kiddy, though, I probably wouldn't fit in there anymore lol.
