Spaniards are British?I hope they don't do a "we're not British" like some here do.

So was how the Union was formed. The Welsh and Irish mostly certainly did not join it voluntarily. But that's another story.
What I meant by is dickblocking them, which is fortunately not the case. Sorry for a poor choice of word.

Well, as long as both the UK and the Republic of Scotland remain in EU, I don't thing anything will really change on an international level.

When a Catalan or Basque nationalist says "I'm not Spanish", they (almost always) don't mean "I'm not politically or geographically Spanish", which would be objectively incorrect. What they mean that they're not nationally Spanish in the sense that citizenship =/= nationality and they're as geographically Spanish as the Portuguese. They consider that the Castilian-speaking areas of Spain have appropriated the term "Spain" to refer to their culture, and they prefer to promote their national name rather than trying to fit their identity within the broader term which is generally exclusive and Castilocentric.
