Auld Chiel, do you think McCartney's song was about the southern tip of the Kintyre peninsula? The video that accompanied it certainly wasn't set there (it was actually set about two thirds of the way down the long and winding road that I previously mentioned! )

As for your continued racist remarks AC, some of those with the names you mention are actually more Scottish than Macca will ever claim to be... having a Mc prefix on your name does not make you a Gael!

Keep your racism off away from this forum .
If you persist with your vile filth , I will petition Admin for you to be banned .

Paul McCartney was born in England and therefore is English .
People who are born in Scotland , including those with names like Kahn, Singh, Patel, Goldberg and Jacoboski , are Scottish .

To be Scottish you have to first be a Scot, just as being English is dependant upon having Anglo-Saxon ancestry. Where a person is born has no bearing on their ethnic background which is encoded in their DNA.

Wrong again .
DNA had absolutely nothing to do with geography .
Scotland is a name for a geographical location , as is England


Keep your racist claptrap to yourself .

I doubt the Wee Glesga Man has upset the Alabama Banjo Walloper somewhat, re' the elopement with Mrs Chiel. There must have been something rather more than just a stuffed badger up his kilt! wullie.

Scotland is a region of the Island of Britain that was named for the Scots, a tribe of Gaels from Ireland who colonised the northern part of Britain in 500 AD. If there had never been an ethnic group known as the Scots, there would never have been a country known as "Scotland", in fact, it took quite awhile for the name to catch on in Britain. Ireland was originally referred to as "Scotia Major" whereas the north of Britain was formerly referred to as "Scotia Minor" because it was simply an outpost colony of the Scots.
