Thread Name: BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which?
Subject: RE: BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which?
Yes, but we "British" invented ways of JAMMING it,which by 1945 was the really important thing !! As to the main point of the thread; well, if asked,for example,to declare or reveal my national identity as part of a form in-filling process, I invariably put "English",even if no such box exists for me to tick ( in which case I write "ENGLISH" in large letters in the "Other" box).I hate "UK" , and resent "Great Britain" as it includes some ethnic groups whose loyalty to Her Majesty is somewhat suspect,to say the least. Better, I say, to secede or devolve from the "Union",and let the Welsh & the Scottish Nations run their own affairs, and pay for their own defence,transport,education,social & medical welfare ,etc., and give us back our National Identity,so that we can tell the French (and some other countries) what they can do with the EU / Common Market (what a joke !) once & for all !
"Perfidious Albion" ?? Bring it on, Monsieurs !!
