I did the maths:

2014-800 = 1214
1214 < 2000

Also I think it's worth noting that the world "England" comes from the name of the Germanic people called the "Angles" who came to Britain in the 5th century, the Anglo-Saxon kingdom being, broadly speaking, what we now call England.

Britain, however, is an older concept, coming from the Latin name "Britannia" that was used to describe the region of Britain that they occupied. (Roman Britain only ever extended as far north as the Firth of Fifth Forth, but the word could be used to describe the whole island).


That's kind of where I was coming from - mind you, I've seen Alan trying to count out whose round it is so I'm hardly surprised! tongue

Hi there


Yes indeed the Angles brought the name with them when they arrived. I think the point I was trying to make and so evidently failing is that the geopolitical entity known as "England" has been around a lot longer than the one known as either "The United Kingdom" or "Great Britain".


As for my ability to count rounds.... when I fail to pay for one then you can start worrying Ted! wink

Don't be daft - it would be called Angleland then, wouldn't it?

England was founded in 845 by Englebert the Unsteady, a Friesian mead brewer who got pissed up one weekend and took a wrong turn in his coracle. After washing up near what later became Great Yarmouth, he brought the magical knowledge of booze to the astounded locals who, after sampling his wares, couldn't really get their tongues around "Englebert" and so called him Eng for short.

You don't get this sort of education in history books, you know? cool

Of course but you missed out the part where it is reported that Englebert was in fact rather short and rotund and he had a really bad BO issue...Yes Englebert was dumpy and he stinks....

All togther now...

Great Britain, yes, came later. Naturally. You can't be great when you start out. but the debate on this thread about national pride which has morphed into unrelated territory like not agreeing with how your country is run, a separate issue (In the 80's I was happy to be English, Scottish, Welsh and British, but didn't want foreigners thinking Margaret Thatcher was anything to do with me!) and flag flying has confused some such as Lily for obvious reasons, it has meandered too much.

So, in the interest of proper explanation, I offer the following:
