GUEST,Allan Con BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which? (99* d) RE: BS: Great Britain or United Kingdom - which? 30 Sep 10


"If so, then the Isle of Wight is part of the United Kingdom. (And you could use the same rule of thumb for the Isle of Man, etc.)"

The two are completely different Jim. The Isle of Wight is part of England itself just as the Isle of Skye is part of Scotland - so yes the Isle of Wight is part of the UK. The Isle of Man on the other hand as a Crown Dependency is largely left alone to self govern but the UK Govt actually has the ultimate authority on internal matters (though it doesn't for the most part interfere) and acts for the island on day to day international matters etc. The Isle of Man though is not an integral part of the UK.
