So there cannot be such a person as an ethnic German Romanian citizen by birth?

I don't know but I'm Scottish and I'm not going to be losing sleep over semantics. I think if you suggested to the average Scottish person in the street that they weren't really a Scot they'd quite rightly look at you if you were a sandwich short of a picnic.

The average Scot would depend on how a Scot was to be deined to begin with. Thankyou for sharing your thoughts.

Pedantic to the point of perversity as always. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Smile Scottish

Seems fairly simple - Scottish if you were born in Scotland and live there and if you live in Kenya and did not become a Kenyan citizen you are still Scottish. If you became a Kenyan citizen then you would no longer be Scottish but a Kenyan of Scottish ethnicity.

Isn't that what Adolf Hitler forced on Europe ?

You fancy doing the same in Scotland ? See yourself as a would-be Reinhard Heydrich ? Or more likely - Artur Phleps, ethnic-German Romanian commander of the 7 SS-Freiwilligen-Gebirgs-Division Prinz Eugen ?
