Subject: RE: BS: Anyone complaining about the UK heat?
There are other threads running at the moment showing that Great Britain is Scotland, England and Wales. The United Kingdom is GB plus Northern Ireland and Eire has bugger all to do with any of them as it is an independent republic. What may be confusing is that all the above belong to the British Isles archipelago, a geographical unit which makes Eire British in that sense but definitely not politically.
