What’s the Difference Between England, Britain and the U.K.?

As explained by the Smithsonian Institute. Which of all the US, (American, or is it USA?) organisations is right up there with NASA as an all time favourite of mine. Many years back I spent a blissfully happy time exploring its Air and Space Museum. I had seen images or copies of grand breaking aircraft, etc. They had the originals. Awesome. But anyway, the video is… illuminating, and rather funny. How we are seen, by some at least, from the other side of the pond.


There is an associated article at Smithsonian.com. Worth reading if only to learn that a well-known US news corporation confused the EU with the UN, and reported that the Brexit referendum meant Britain was leaving the United Nations. (Though given our recent propensity to shed influence on the world stage, that may soon follow.)

About Noel G

My sites are a mélange. A collection; a library; a museum: of things I like, or find thought provoking. To make them easy for me to find if nothing else.
