British Isles = Scotland, Ireland, Ulster, Wales and England.
UK/Britian = Scotland, Ulster, Wales and England.
Great Britain = Scotland, Wales and England.

In Scotland, and propably Wales to, calling UK/Britain England is actually seen as an insult.


So Ireland isn't part of the UK?  

But they are part of the British Isles, see that's confusing...British and Britain, and Great Britain.  Ya'll should all get together and become The United States of  Britain.

Its easy....Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales are all part of Great Britain or the United Kingdom.

Some people call our country Great Britain, some call it the UK- United Kingdom, some call it 'this country sucks!' original.gif

grin2.gif Don't get me wrong, don't mind the individual nations, and despite what some people (wo are thankfully gone tongue.gif ) I don't 'hate' the English. I simply can't start this thing called the UK.

Lets take the UK apart in friendship and all join the European Superstate grin2.gif laugh.gif

disagree talon i dont mind being part of europe to a certain extent but i love being british, and im a fiercly patriotic scot .

Ill be damned if some german or french beurocrat will get his hands on OUR army let alone make any decisions about us.

Joc the Republic of Ireland is a serperate nation, Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom .

Ireland is basically split in two, the republic has nothing to do with us.

Equally I don't want another Thatcher to be impossed on is for more than a decade because of Conservative voters (who are more or less extinct in Scotland laugh.gif ) tongue.gif

But this really isn't the issue anyway... I forget what was ... oh yeah Iraq and the US huh.gif
