    Do you consider yourself to be British? If not, do you have an alternative term?

    I don't think that's going to catch on.

    As has already been mentioned, the full name of our country is "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". As that's a bit of a mouthful, it usually gets shortened to the UK or Britain. In terms of an adjective, we use "British". That doesn't imply the exclusion of Northern Ireland. After all, the whole archipelago (Great Britain, Ireland, and all the smaller islands) is known as the "British Isles". I have never heard of an alternative term.

    This is BC. Everyone knows from Cali's posts that the adjective relating to Britain is "Bratash".
