United Kingdom of the British Isles?

Updated: Mar 11, 2018

The United Kingdom of the British Isles... The Nation post BREXIT.

Is it The UK or Great Britain?

No, it is The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

I always wonder why it says "and Northern Ireland" I get, there is the island of Great Britain and the island of Ireland, I fully understand these are 2 separate islands.

Although collectively there are over 6000 islands and they are known as the British Isles.

So there is no need for the "and Northern Ireland" part, we should be calling the nation the United Kingdom of the British Isles, perhaps more fitting for a 21st century state?

And much more inclusive for the people of Northern Ireland...
