'English' used to mean you were of non-celtic descent, basically saxon, angle, etc and British meant yoiu were from the island nation. There is also a difference in language and to some extent appearance in areas where there is a lot of descent from Danes (roughly mid to the southern portion of the land below Scotland.) There remain differences in language.

A friend who was attending school in Scotland keyed me in about this because my characters I was writing was British, but while to us its the same, not to the Brits...

I was telling someone once that I have a lot of scots in my geneology and he said its quite obvious since I look it.

The picture is not detailed enough for me, from what I seem to see, you don't look typical British.

Nope, when I think of British I think of really hot blonde chicks... Sorry you don't fit the bill...

Yes you do Belmont. The British and Irish have a varied appearance and you would fit in fine.

Beats me. I have roughly the same background you do, but I'm blonde with blue eyes so I imagine there are varied types that would be considered "British".

Anyway, you're a handsome young man.
