Not on official official documents of course but in your mind where do you place yourself and in what order?
I think of myself a EuroEnglishFrench person.

If I’m abroad, and I’m asked, my reply would be “English”. Currently not overly proud to be.

English, Yorkshire bred, but Derbyshire born and raised, yet the strong desire to return to Yorkshire frequently has stayed with me all my life.

A Yorkshire lass then English, British, European. If Scotland is going to become independent I'd like Yorkshire to become part of Scotland. I'd happily be Yorkshire, Scottish, European.
