The island of Britain is composed of the countries of Scotland, England, and Wales. Those three countries (plus Northern Island) are united into a single nation known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Scandinavia...

Always Denmark, Sweden, Norway; sometimes Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands; and never The Netherlands.

Considering many of the "winners" didn't even realize what they were voting for, I can't blame the "losers." Alas, a vote is a vote and there shouldn't be any re-dos unless wrongdoing was afoot.

It appears we are both correct. The UK is considered a country but the four we are discussing - Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales - are countries unto themselves as well.From what I understand, the arrangement is somewhat synonymous with the US structure of federal government (UK) and states (Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales).

I for one hope the UK breaks up and England becomes a tiny, insignificant little backwater. It's called KARMA for what they did to their colonies, particularly India.

This guy says it about as eloquently as anyone. The EU has been a disaster.
