BECAUSE THEY AREN'T:

This chart shows which Europeans are the least likely to consider themselves European (Elena Holodny and Andy Kiersz, 4/21/16, Reuters)

The British are the least likely Europeans to consider themselves European.

That's according to data from the Spring 2015 Eurobarometer report, which we spotted in a recent Morgan Stanley research note.

The Eurobaromater report, published by the European Commission, surveyed Europeans to see how they understood concepts of European citizenship and identity. One of the most interesting questions in the report focused on how European citizens viewed their relationships to their home nations and to Europe as a whole, asking whether they identified themselves only by their nationality, by nationality and then as European, as European and then by their nationality, or just as European.

Overall, British respondents were the most likely to identify themselves only by nationality, at 64%.
