Letter: Mistrust in Ulster

Click to follow
Sir: A J Williams (letter, 8 July) asks me how I interpret the name of our country, "the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". Well, certainly not as something that divides the British from the non-British - he did say "our country". Anyway, I seem to remember the Falklanders and Gibraltarians making some claim to being British, and a surprising number of people still refer to these islands as the British Isles.
