The United Kingdom is NOT England.

England, Scotland and Wales are the countries which make the term 'Great Britain. '
Ireland is a separate country which is split between- Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland. Only Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom.

So, the United Kingdom is Great Britain ( England, Scotland, Wales) and Northern Ireland.
The proper name for the UK is ' The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland'

"the prime minister is labour tory.theres a mosque at the end of your street and a french restaurant next door. We are neither in or out of Europe. We are famous for our beer but drink in wine bars. we are not a colonial power but still have a commonwealth. we are jealous of the rich but buy into the Hello! celebrity culture. We live in a United Kingdom thats no longer united. We are muddled." -Jeremy Clarkson

The only place on earth that securely ties itself to a chair and then cordially invites all the scumbags of the world to come and rob it of its own riches and benefits, even passing laws to help them to do so and prevent its own indigenous population from doing anything about it. This has come to such a head that the people with any money /common sense are gradually (upon retirement or earlier)moving away to such places as France, Spain, Portugal to escape the madness. Eventually the indigenous population will dwindle to such a degree that there will be too few people contributing into the system to support the ever increasing number of scumbags taking out of the system.
I'm moving awaqy from the United Kingdom to escape from the ever increasing number of scumbags the country seems hellbent on importing.
