A person from England, Wales or Scotland. Northern Ireland is not included as the full formal title of the UK is 'the United Kingdom of Great Britain AND Northern Ireland'. Ireland is not British. Britishness is sort of an umbrella nationality foisted upon people which has now partially grafted. Within Britain most people primarliy express their loyalties to either England, Walse or Scotland, depending on thier particular circumstances, and thereafter to Britainor not as in many cases.
