Quoting Mel.

A Canadian guy told me Ireland is a British Isle.

The British Isles comprise Britain and (northern/southern) Ireland as well as several smaller islands. . .

Just because u are British, does not excuse u believing that half the world still belongs to England.

Uhm, but it is true, United Kingdom excludes Ireland, but the term British Isles does not

I think they should just speak propper German, in Holland.
All this nonsense, about wanting their own identity......

And while we are all getting to know our geography, i'd like to ask if anybody knows, if Canada is the biggest United State?

Actually I'm Scottish. And the fact that the British Isles includes Ireland has nothing to do with belief, opinion or nationality.

yeah, isnt it about time, that Ireland is no longer known as a British isle?
These types of old annoyances seem to drag on forever in the world and society.

Any, I was joking about u being British Mickeyboab. I know u are not.

Mel, i'm not sure if you are aware of this but I am a free thinker. I choose to poke holes in your arguments because I find inaccuracies in them. I do the same with other members and fully expect anyone else to do the same with mine. While I do take issue with what others say it doesnt mean I dont appreciate their right to speak their mind.

I'm not sure you are one to speak of bandwagons but i've got plenty of ass for you to kiss!
