Thread Name: BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which?
Subject: RE: BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which?
If I am holidaying in another country and someone asks where I come from I usually say from England really to explain where I am on the map. If I came from Wales, Scotland or Ireland I would say that. At home/work I use UK because that is what I use when answering the telephone in my job at work short and to the point but not the full United Kingdom which is a bit of a mouthful. GB reminds me of GBH.
