No, 'UK' is the abreviation for 'The united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland'. Great britain is of course just a geographical term for the main island of the british isles. Ireland is the other (that should start an argument). Try not to confuse geographical and political terms...

But what does the word 'british' mean?', if it means 'from the british isles' then all of the irish are british, if it means 'from great britain' then the northern irish aren't british...

Weather this weekend

Just took a look at the weather for Switzerland.
Sat....77 degrees.
Sun....91 degrees, yes that's right 91 degrees,
and we thought Brands was hot.

Safe flight for the morning Richy and Maria.
Anni-Mae say's hello, teach her dad how to do the spit bubbles.

Yeah, but those unfortunates from southern Ireland, otherwise known as Eire (is it still?), better not show their ugly Mick faces on this board.

(Before anybody starts complaining, this is meant as a joke and, as my grandparents were 100% Irish, I feel I can say such things without running the risk of starting a bitter political debate.)

It's not PART of the UK, its the UK 'and' Northern Ireland...
my post was in jest...your welcome to post here...or there...or anywhere.

Wonder how long before we'll need English, Welsh, Scottish and an LSD forum?

Apologies if this has been mentioned previously, but there's a fantastic piece on Tony Alva in the July issue of "Jack" magazine. Well worth a browse in WH Smiths.

I can post here if I want!

Northern Ireland IS in the UK.

Look at your Passport.

Its something like. "The United Kingdom of Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands".

Of course this could be opening a whole other can of worms!

New forum!! thanks to Clingfilm, Simon & those who negotiated for the use of Brands Hatch. As a non slalomer I was very happy to make a clean run, (only once & slowly I must admit) It was great to see Michael Dong & Richy Carassco on UK soil. Greenwich tomorrow anybody? I'll be there.
Regards

I was hoping for an Aint It Cool News type claim of "First" but Jonny beat me to it. He was faster than me at Brands Hatch on Sunday too. In fact, everybody was. Is being King of the Losers a good thing or a bad thing?
