What The Hell is the United Kingdom?

If you can manage to understand the fast-paced (and humorous) tone of the narrator, you probably now are an expert on the subject. Being a Britophile myself I already knew all this, but I agree it can be quite confusing for the non-initiated - even Brits are not always sure what’s Northern Ireland doing in the UK.

(I got this little gem via Smitten by Britain).
(Not surprising, eh?)

  1. Err, Northern Ireland isn’t in Britain…

    There’s a reason that it’s known as “The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”

    That’s what happens when you try to do things too quickly. Fixed it, thanks for mentioning it. Although I definitely look like I know nothing about the UK now. ;)

  3. Hehe - I just watched this (i think I found the link on twitter). I was almost sure I knew all the differences, but I wanted to be sure! Such a funny video.

    This was super helpful! I was actually a bit clueless about the differences-I’m no Britophile! Will be sharing for laughs with my English friends!

    Even after living in England, I could NOT get all this information straight. My Brit (now I’m not even sure I can call them that) friends tried to explain it, but I swear they didn’t really know the answers either!
