Yankees please note: British doesn't mean Scottish

So we Scots, and yes I still refuse to call myself a Brit because as person with real knowledge of Britain can tell you, British people are not inherently Scottish. The term is rather a localised nationality to distinguish people from the North of the border from those from the south, but it also means a lot more in terms of history and heritage. Just recently for example...

I’d also like to take this time to point out that generally, regardless of where you are in the world, people will not be puzzled when you tell them you’re from Scotland. :]

Re: Ana's blog. :)

I still contest that I have never called her, Noah, Travis nor Matt a "Yankee" beacause I know that it's not equal to a Texan. This might clear the mess up a little.

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Northerners, a Yankee is an Easterner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast.

And, in a more tongue in cheek way of looking at it is thus:

"In English-speaking countries outside the United States, especially in Australia, Canada[12], Ireland[13], New Zealand and Britain, Yankee, almost universally shortened to Yank, is used as a derogatory, playful or referential colloquial term for the U.S. citizens. In certain Commonwealth countries, notably Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, "Yank" has been in common use since at least World War II, when thousands of Americans were stationed in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Depending on the country, "Yankee" may be considered mildly derogatory."

Oh, those Yanks, huh?
