This cleared up a lot of confusion in my mind so I thought I'd share this:

Nothing that I did not know, but as a synopses, reasonably self explanatory! The man should use his talking skills as a horse racing commentator.

Gotta say, I knew that but do understand why people have an issue remembering it - because some people like to take a misplaced sense of patriotism and deliberately get it wrong - and then tell others.

The Venn diagram is perfect!

I can never remember all of that. I kind of wish I could move to England, but there's no way I could afford it, let alone find a job. lol

I'm another British citizen who has known this for a very long time. It's not at all difficult, but there are quite a few British people I know, who couldn't tell you the differences between these.

I wouldn't really expect anyone outside of the UK to know this though, they don't really have a great need to know this, but... Interesting video nonetheless :)

the video is down but i'm sure I already know

U.K. great Britain and norther Ireland

great Britain is the biggest of the british isles including England Scotland and wales

England is simply one of the countries of the U.K. located on G.B.

and the crown controls everything in U.K. and what's left of it's empire.

That was perfect! I knew the UK, but didn't know the difference between GB and England.

That video was surprisingly entertaining. I have to admit I didn't know much of the material, but now I do. Thanks for sharing.

Great video, thanks for posting!

Actually, I was once asked 'What is the difference between the United Kingdom and Great Britain?' during a job interview...watching this clip, I'm not entirely sure I gave the correct answer...

Great overview. Thanks for posting. While I feel that I knew most of that at some point, it helped to clear some things up.
