Merry Andrew,you got out of one hole, and then dug another.
Firstly, you say that "technically" the UK "only" consists of Scotland England and Wales. But it was YOU who said that the UK was "England". You don't know what you're talking about, do you?
Dumb yanks call us "England". The United Kingdom is not some "technical" thing, it is the proper title of the country I live in. Calling Britain "England" is like calling the US "Alabama".
Next, what is this supposed to mean?
i.e. the former Great Britain
Great Britain is a geographical term, not a political one. It refers to the island which contains England, Wales and Scotland. There is nothing "former" about it. It still exists.
I thought you were claiming to be a Brit because you wrote this in the context of Bermuda being a colony of Britain:-
Tell your teacher we don't have 'colonies' any more.[
Who is 'we' exactly in this context? Why did you write it?
If 'we' means Americans, then you are even more ignorant than I thought. since you haven't heard of a US colony called Guam. Or any of the other US colonies either.
I suggest you reflect what this site is called (Able2Know) and restrict yourself to writing about stuff which you actually know about, rather than just posting complete BS which helps nobody and just misleads people who come here for help.
Farmerman, you may be right, but so bloody what? What a pr*ck you are to write like that. No wonder the rest of the world thinks Americans are dumb loudmouth bullies who badly need physical help to STFU. Anyway surely the South Carolina National Guard are all over in Iraq murdering women and children for fun?
