And Scotland is British. There was a big vote about a few years ago.
Not sure if that'll last, though...

Tesco's new discount store is a Yoon conspiracy, The National reveals
Over the next year the supermarket giant will be opening between 10 and 15 branches of Jack's, investing at least £20 million in the project.

The name was chosen in honour of Tesco's founder Jack Cohen.

Take a look at some pictures of the stores though – two of which open tomorrow – and the pun becomes a bit clearer.

We suspect you'll have noticed that the pictures feature quite the array of Union Jacks and mentions of "British".

It's quite the showing of Union Jackery – in pretty much every direction you turn.

And it's an important matter too. One of the battlegrounds in the Westminster power grab on Holyrood is food standards.

The #KeepScotlandTheBrand campaign isn't a joke either. Scotland has a reputation for high-quality produce, and attempts to hide that brand are harmful and counter-productive.

Couldn't they just call the stores in Scotland "Jock's"?

Indy supporter Brian Cox doesn't want a bucket of Brexit crap poured over his country to achieve it. A more grown-up approach then the cynical game the SNP are playing by not backing the Peoples Vote on Brexit.
Botched Brexit might help Indyref cause but will leave Scotland poorer says Brian Cox

Scottish actor Brian Cox has joined the campaign for a second referendum on Brexit.

It’s no secret I support Scottish independence.

Work commitments mean I have to spend a lot of time away but I am here in Scotland about a third of my time and I am about as far from the romantic advocates of shortbread and tartan nationalism as it’s possible to get.

I am a socialist who believes independence is the practical route to the social justice and increased equality that heroes like John Smith advocated.

It is that same commitment to social progress that makes me so anxious about the botched Brexit being cooked up by the Westminster Brexit elite.

Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and their Eton pals may shrug off the economic damage Brexit will inflict on our economy but working class communities in Scotland don’t have that luxury.

I know there may be some who think that the inevitable chaos which would follow might help the independence cause. https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/poli ... f-13370405

The Brexiteers and the SNP along with the wider indy movement have a lot more in common than either would like to admit.
