What is the difference between UK and England?

Apparently, they are not the same. I’ve always thought they are. :S Are British and English different too?

Answer #1

the united kingdom has a total of 4 countries.. england, scotland, wales and northern ireland… im british cus i was born in england so cus i was born in england that makes me british.. the scotish, wels and northern irish are also british but the scots are scotish, the welsh are welsh and the northern irish are northern irish… hope that didnt confuse u more ze lol

Answer #2

Answer #3

thanks matt!

So, for the lack of a better term, UK is like the mother country and like, england, scotland, wales, and northern ireland are like its little countries?

does this mean that scottish, welsh, and irish are all British as well? and that only people from england are english?

I always thought that people from UK are English :S

Answer #4

yup, the 4 countries in the uk all make up the uk.. all ppl from the 4 countries are all british and yes the english are ppl just from england :) most forms you have to fill out over here go something like this: when asked for nationality some will say ‘british white - british asian etc etc’ and some will say ‘british english - british scotland - british welsh etc etc’.. ive even seen a few with ‘british other’ lol

Answer #5

Ok :-) i get it now. mannn, i never knew there was a difference! thanks for clarifying matt!

So, If I see a UK flag, i’ll think British, not English :-)

Answer #6
