Genes -> Culture -> Politics -> Law
The UK is made up of many more than 4 distinct cultures.
BUT the British are mostly united in the very least on mutual defence. This has been invested into over the centuries and is one of our greatest commons as Britons.
(Culture is downstream of genes, and we share largely very similar and distinctive genes, even the Scotts are on average over 30% anglo-saxon, the source of our common law)
We have other commons, language, science… and we have not only maintained these commons but strengthened these commons, it has been an increasingly harmonious arrangement. It has been the lubrication on the wheels of contracts and the market. Our common trust.
There are differences and to the extent that there are, as much as possible authority might ought be decentralised as locally as possible.
