    One can never be a citizen of the UK, as a system with monocracy we are subjects is this an issue or does it even matter?

    MY TAKE: dont mind being a subject but think the UK should get up to speed and accept that we are all global citizens or are we???

    EDIT: Spelling, I swear i read them before i post them but still find mistakes

    The illegal immigrants think so, when we allow them to stay, give them money,
    housing etc, I think of myself as a citizen first, a loyal subject last, and that's a bit tenuous at the moment with the antics the royal fam is getting up to. I think of them as ambassadors for Britain but thats about all. I don't think there's much difference between citizen and subject exept for our unwelcome 'guests' they're denizens.

    We stopped being "Subjects" in the 1980's, since then we have been Citizens.

    The difference is that a British "Subject" does not have the right to live in the UK, a British Citizen has...

    Don't worry, it's not you making the mistakes. This is a conspiracy between the global moderators against "us". When they get bored, or if "they" find we're too clever for their likings, they make subtle spelling changes, to take the p*ss. You will adjust to their sense of humour, with time.

    I cant identify with "English", however have no trouble with "British".

    I'm a British citizen, my parents are from India, but still British citizens,

    I think monarchy is outdated and should be scrapped!

    To each their own, if the chap wants to think of himself as English instead of British , then let him. It doesn&#39;t come as much of a surprise anyway.

    Like you I think of myself as British and it is what it says on my passport. It is also what I would put on a form were it to require my nationality. I am not sure that a nationality such as Scottish would actually have any official meaning. Much as the parochially minded would like it to.

    With regard to the subject thing. Britain remains a constitutional monarchy as far as I am aware, so the Queen being any sort of head of state is really no more than titular, as such to consider one&#39;s self a subject would be pretty much meaningless.
