To add to D_..'s reply: The United Kingdom is made up of the countries England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
Thank you Jaye and D_,, as an Englishwoman living in my Mother country of England I appreciate you coming to my country's defence. :-))
As a British person living in England I can say that I live in the country of England, which is part of the United Kingdom. I challenge those who say otherwise to visit the UK and start saying to British people (English, Scots, Welsh and Irish/Northern Irishl that England is not a country, Scotland is not a country etc. Don't expect a good reaction!
