    Waitwaitwaitwaitwait... I thought Wales was a city in England and Scotland was in continental Europe? And I thought that entire big blob on the right was England and only the English were British?

    So since they're all technically British, does that mean they all had control of the colonies in the US, India, Australia, ect?

    I'm sorry, but I'm the only map disabled person in the world, am I?

    no, no, no, and no.

    Wales is a country, not a city.
    Scotland has always perched on top of England.
    the big blob on the right is England, Wales and Scotland.
    The English are British, but so are the Welsh, Scots and Northern Irish.
    However the Welsh, Scots and Northern Irish are not English.

    Nearly everyone I know from Australia would probably be happy about that. You'll find there is a huge feeling of republicanism brewing down under.

    Yeah, I have never minded the monarchy. And I appreciate that our country was founded on peaceful actions instead of wars.

    Also, what part of history in particular are you referring to? War of 1812? Battle between the French and the British that no one remembers?

    Or are you speaking of the general association of the two world wars with the path towards independence of our nation?
