Am I the only person who find it insulting when people refer to Britain as England? They don't say UK, they always call the place England and seeing as I'm Welsh and I live in Wales I can't help but take offense. When people say it I find it insulting because they are totally disregarding Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, whether they do it intentionally or not. It kind of reinforces that statement which I was told by someone the other month, "Ah yes, Wales, that small abscess hanging off that great country England". I have great respect for Wales, I am also proud to be British and maybe I'm just too sensitive, but it gets on my nerves when people refer to the WHOLE of the UK as England. If you live outside the UK, do you call the UK England when refering to it? I won't be mad or anything, I would just like to know if you do or not. And those who live in Britain, what are your thoughts on this matter?
