Do you know the difference between the UK, Great Britain, and England?
Do I get to see them smile?
I would probably score a 50-75% on a test.
Yep. I've only been over there ten times or so, so I better know the difference.
England is who we beat in wars then defend, Great Britain is an s
Island with really one important country (Whales) and UK is Northern Ireland
Haha "whales" :)
The poor Whelsh, I guess they got harpooned.
Its been explained below - but yes I do. I can even explain how, when, and why each union happened and the changes to the flag along the way, lol. Which I actually did to my friends the other day - I am so much a history teacher lol.
This video covers that topic, as well as a few others.
Answer: the UK is Northern Ireland, Scotland, and England. Great Britain is Scotland and England. England, of course, is just England.
Beat me to it
Oops, I forgot Wales.
Everyone does :-p
What about Ireland (not Northern Ireland)?
Ireland's a totally different country. No affiliation. It used to be, but it seceded in the 20s, I believe.
Rlands, wrong. The isle of Ireland is split. North Ireland is part of the UK, and the Republic of Ireland is a sovereign nation.
And that is Ireland. He didn't say north Ireland. He actually said not north Ireland. Actual Ireland isn't part of the UK or GB or England.
Don't forget the Isle of Man and Jersey. Those are under the crown, no? I believe they are more so then, say, Canada.
I don't think they're specifically part of the UK...they call them dependencies or something. But I could be wrong on that.
Thank you all for the answers. I've always wondered about Ireland's official status. I'd live to go to the UK one day. And the Emerald Isle too.
Skarface said Northern Ireland...I don't see where the confusion is coming from
DiJitiL was wondering about the Republic of Ireland, not Northern Ireland.
Skarface is correct. I meant the republic.
