Really? Which "part of Britain" would that be?
All that north of the Great Glen.
It was. In the geological pre-Cambrium. Literally over an aeon ago. By that definition the entire Euro-Asian landmass is "part of North America"...
Or vice versa of course!
But it's not
according to the definers of the continents, the map makers and rulers of the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries, whose definitions are still the international standard afaik.
No I didn't! I dismissed the non action of the EU states in Bosnia because Bosnia wasn't, and isn't, a member of the EU. Which is not the same as Europe.
Granted, thus your security via the EU was useless
security via the EU"? The UK wasn't a member of the EU?
Whatever EU responsibilities there are, are by default – well, by treaty really – also UK responsibilities.
And again: EU security pledges are mutually pledged to EU members. Not to non
EU members, obviously. Bosnia wasn't a member.

Our press virually always uses the word Europe rather than EU, I followed that convention.
In the same token the majority of Americans will call Britain 'England,' and you will also find that illegal immigrants state that they want to get to 'England.'
I must be imagining things... Did I hear that correctly? Is the empire of Shakespeare fielding a colloquial, and decidedly working class lack of nuance and comprehension in defense of ignorance?
I never thought I'd see the day!
