  • Hey, Daniel. I’m enjoying your very personal take on US and world news. And random phrases!

    A couple of points for your American listeners since this comes up all the time in my conversations with Americans so it may be worth clarifying:

    England is not a sovereign state. It is a mere geographical region (albeit the largest and most populous) within the United Kingdom of Great Britain (that’s the larger of the two islands to the east on a map) and Northern Ireland (that’s the northern part of the Island of Ireland. The on the left on a map. With me so far?!)

    While England does technically have its own legal system, in practice nearly all laws passed by the UK parliament in London are for the United Kingdom as a whole, although Scotland is quite independent in many laws, with their own assembly and separate legal system, and Wales and N. Ireland also have their own assemblies and minor law making powers.

    So whatever Americans talk of “England”, they nearly always mean the United Kingdom.

    England is indeed pretty tiny, but it’s still a real places as I can attest from my presence here, and with a population of 60 million people it’s about a fifth of the population of the United States, so not exactly a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific or something.

    Hope that clarifies things.

    Keep up the entertaining insights!

    • Thanks for the info! I feel like I have a general understanding, but apparently I’m still a bit off. 🙂

      It almost sounds similar to the US states. Each state is able to govern themselves and pass laws to an extent, but are still under the authority and subject to the laws of the Federal Government.
