Hi there :) Used to use the GTF forum a good half decade ago, making the natural progression onto here

First name: Call me Tony
Nickname(s)?:
Age: 21
Orientation: Gay
Where you live: In anglia, in the UK
Where you're from: Yorkshire, again in the UK
What you do (job, schooling, etc.): I'm a university student
Dream Job: A travel rep seems like a fun job
Religion (or lack thereof):

Interests and hobbies: I quite like gaming, walks, eating

I'm too unimaginative to fill in the rest of the form, but feel free to ask to know more

East and West Anglia are regions of England.

England shouldn’t equal UK in any language. It’s like saying Silesia = Poland.

Anglia- it is a Polish word not English in English is England ,but when you say Anglia in Polish you often think about Great Britain. sorry for my mistake .

Kotek, you should have written "UK = Scotland". I guess, it would sound nicer for Scotlanders. :P

We're still not getting there, I'm afraid...

Great Britain is an island, not a country.

The UK is a country which covers the island of Great Britain (including England, Scotland and Wales) plus the northern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands.

England is a constituent country of the UK occupying a portion of the island of Great Britain, and it's not the only one.

UK, GB and England are NOT equal or interchangeable. :P
