Default United Kingdom Vs Britain Vs England

right i just got in an arguement with my brother when i asked him if he will be watching the F1 and he said no and i said why not are u not going to support lewis hamilton to bring the championship to england.

and he said no he will bring it back to the united kingdom and i simply said what country do you live in he said united kingdom and i said dont be stupid you live in england.

now this is my question for all you that live in machester, londong, birmingham , milton keynes etc anywhere in england what country do you live in ?

same for people anywhere in scotland like glasgow ? do you live in scotland or united kingdom etc.

I'm not from there, but UK, Britain, and England are the same from my understanding.

england is a county just like scotland or wales.
England, Scotland and Wales form Great Britain, Great Britain is a part of the United kindom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
coming from London , you would live in England, Great Britain and also the United Kingdom :-)

then we could upscale this to the European Union.....

We don't have a British passport either, its a Passport of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (which also has European Union stamped on the cover!)

confused? i am :-)
thats why i started using my new french passport, a scottish accent travelling under a Frog passport really confuses immagration :-)

London is the capital city of the United Kingdom as a whole and not just England.

I'm British. unless it's sporting, then I'm English.

with the exception of F1, it's the British grand prix at Silverstone, and British drivers, bringing the drivers championship to Britain, not just england or Scotland.

rugby football etc I'm england supporter, then a Britain supporter (assuming the English team gets knocked out)
