Thread Name: BS: UK Pledge of allegiance???
Subject: RE: BS: UK Pledge of allegiance???
If you're a migrant to Scotland, and want to become a loyal Scot, you'd maybe have doubts about swearing allegiance to the United Kingdom. Similarly in Wales to a less extent, and of course in Norrthern Ireland to a very considerable extent.

I can't see how making people swear an oath of allegiance to Crown and Country is really too calculated to integrate people to a population, large numbers of which would be unwilling to swear such an oath themselves.
