    ----------------------------------------------------

    Geography lesson time.
    Great Britain is comprised of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Southern Ireand.
    The United Kingdom (UK)is jut England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The UK is technically under 1 Goverment (though that may change soon) while Great Britain is under 1 monarchy (dont even get me started on what BS a queen is).
    This is a scottish tradition from what I know, not British.British would imply is a tradition everywhere.
    We English tend to just get drunk and eat the curry then discuss how ill it made us the next day.
    the one thing I love about the UK/Britain is everywhere is so varied. Accents and traditions can be hugely diffrent just 50 miles appart.

    Whoa whoa whoaaa there Maddog! If you`re going to tech geography, get it right man! Try telling the people of the Republic of Ireland that they`re under the monarchy of the queen!

    There are two separate things here: The British Isles (which is the first thing you described)... This is different from the island of Britain...

    This should clear it up:

    The Scottish/British is a bit of a touchy subject can be the same with the Welsh(who, me?!) sometimes.
    It`s generally best to call a scotsman scottish and no-one gets hurt. simple.
    If someone did that "Tradition" to me there would pain, much pain.

    The Republic of Ireland is only referred to as being part of the British Isles by people outside of the Republic as a way of encompassing both the island of Ireland and the island of Great Britain. it could just as easily be called the Irish Isles. people from The Republic of Ireland rarely use this term.

    Lespaul:

    We`re getting into semantics now but: we have to make sure we`re talking about the same thing. There are geographical entites (Brtiain, Ireland, British Isles, etc) and then there are political entites (UK, ROI, Northern Ireland).

    Britain is the name of that island which contains England Scotland and Wales. What you`re describing is the U.K., not Britain. Believe me, I should know, I`m from Northern Ireland.

    Hence the reason why the full name of the country is "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland"

    It`s correct to call a Scottish tradition British, because unless Scotland digs a very deep ditch to seperate itself from the rest of the island, Scotland is part of Britain.

    Unless you consider the origins of the original Scottish people, because they were Irish. But then you`d have to consider the origina of the original English people, who were German. Although Germany didn`t exist then.

    We do all this to confuse foreigners. It`s the national pastime :)

    If anyone wants to be more confused, look at the crown dependencies of the UK. They`re part of the UK, except in the ways that they aren`t. The Isle of Mann is the best example, as it`s so close.

    The reason why the distinctions being made are a big deal to quite a few people is historical and bloody. You can blame the Romans and Christianity. Go back 2000 years and you had the Irish tribes in Ireland, the British tribes in most of Britain and the Picts in the northern bit. The Romans invaded and conquered the British part of Britain. They didn`t bother with the Picts because there was nothing up there the Romans wanted enough to be worth stationing a lot of soldiers there (if they didn`t do that, the Picts burnt all the Roman buildings down).

    The Scotti clan from Ireland invaded Pict land and no-one knows what happened to the Picts. So there`s Scotland.

    The Romans withdrew and left a power vaccum that some Germanic tribes wanted to fill, so they invaded. Mostly the Angles and the Saxons. A century or two of war later, they`d firmly conquered the eastern and central section of the island. So there`s England (Angle land). Some of the Britons went to the west of the island, so there`s Wales. Cornwall too, but that eventually merged into England. Some left the island completely and founded Brittany, i.e. Lesser Britain (they were lax about spelling in those days).

    Inevitably, the four countries fought. Often. England conquered Wales. England and Scotland fought on and off for centuries. The border moved so much that one town is known mainly for having swapped nationality 13 times. An English civil war was fought in Ireland. The winner conquered Ireland.

    Christianity was behind a lot of it - Protestant vs Catholic. That`s what the English civil war was about - the legitimate heir was Catholic, so a conspiracy was hatched to have a Dutch nobleman usurp the English throne instead, because he was Protestant. Which was why he conquered Ireland - it was a Catholic country. So he oppressed them all too, because he hated Catholicism.

    A Scottish king inherited the English throne, but ruled the two countries seperately because hardly anyone wanted unification. A hundred years later, Scottish people broke their own economy so badly that they had to have England bail them out and the only way to do that was to unify.

    Centuries of war, often brutal and vicious, and unification by conquest (Wales, Ireland) and economic necessity (Scotland).

    The union is a bit wobbly. Wales was conquered over 700 years ago, Ireland over 300 years ago and Scotland joined the union over 200 years ago, but they`re *still* usually seen as separate countries.

    It is correct to call a Scottish tradition British, because Scotland is in Britain. Physically and politically. All English, Scottish and Welsh traditions are British traditions.

    This thing doesn`t happen in most of Scotland either, so by your argument is is not a Scottish tradition anyway.

    The British isles:

    http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/britishisles/

    It`s the whole archipelago. Great Britain, Ireland and every other island in the archipelago, right down to uninhabited rocks.

    While aislingeire is wrong, their post does explain why the term "The British Isles" is hardly used nowadays.

    this is from wikipedia..."The term British Isles is controversial in relation to Ireland, where many people may find the term offensive or objectionable; the Irish government also discourages its usage."
    using the term "British Isles" gives the impression that the islands or isles involved are part of Britain, or ruled by Britain, which in the Republic of Ireland`s case is not true. as ive said before, they term "Irish Isles" could just as easily be used

    Wikipedia is a collection of opinion pages. It`s not a strong source for information and quoting only Wikipedia generally indicates a weak argument.

    The term "Unst Isles" could just as easily be used, too, but it`s more common to name an archipelago after the biggest island than a smaller one, unless that smaller island is more important for some reason (e.g. first one settled, biggest population, capital of the archipelago, whatever).

    "The British Isles" might give a false impression to people who know nothing about the political structures within the archipelago, but that`s not the point. aislingeire said Ireland is not part of the British Isles. They are wrong. It is.

    Arguing that the term shouldn`t be used is one thing. Arguing that calling it "The Irish Isles" would make any sense is silly, hence my example of Unst - a reductio ad absurdum counter-argument.

    angilion, im totally agreeing with you. im not saying the term Irish Isles should be used, im saying it could as easily be used. my point is that using the term British Isles give the impression that all the involving isles are ruled by Britain, which is why people from The Republic of Ireland dont use the term
