Not sure what point you are making.

Europe is a continent made up of individual countries from the Scandinavia to the Mediterranean.

Like you I have filled in many a form with my nationality as British,but I do acknowledge that physically we sit in the continent of Europe.

 

 

I think it's because I don't acknowledge being European at all. Never have done and certainly never spoke or said it out loud to anyone, ever. As I said earlier, I can only assume it's current presence in general talk because of Brexit.

And I think that most of us don't class ourselves as stupid but that doesn't mean that there are very few stupid people.

 

Parochialism, nationalism and tribalism have no place in the twenty first century!

Speak for yourself.

Exactly. So it's meaningless. Classing oneself as British or English before European is perfectly valid.

I never said it want valid. I’d consider myself   English. Then British. Then European.

 

And I’m a hardcore remainer

The Irish are even more of an island race with an even greater sense of identity than we have, yet the vast majority of them have no problem seeing themselves as European.

Why are the Irish even more and an "island race"? Is Ireland more of an island than Britain? 

 

And didn't Ireland vote against the Lisbon Treaty before getting asked again to give the "right" answer?

Have you never heard of the Channel Tunnel?

 

It's been around for a couple of decades now. 😉

A transportation method has no relation to a national sense of identity. And 20 years (nearer 30 now) is a blink of an eye in the scheme of things.
