Ummm... my grasp on European geography is a bit hazy but wouldn't the Channel Islands and the Hebrides etc belong on this page?

I think the Channel Islands deserve a place here, as does the Isle of Man. I'm not sure about the Hebrides (or the Orkney Islands, or the Shetland Islands), since they all belong to Scotland. They (more than) probably deserve a separate article, but should there be a link on this level? D.D. 05:38, 9 Aug 2003 (PDT)
I'd link them then... this is a heirachical sort of index, so it they technically belong to Scotland then indent them under there. KJ

Looking good! :) KJ

No it's not! This is crappo. Can someone who knows more about the Isles please make some region pages and stuff? This is going to be a real tarpit if it goes on much longer. -- Evan 06:12, 7 Nov 2003 (PST)


I reverted the changes made by AVW2343, who added two English regions. These were more suited to the England page, as the term 'North East' isn't used in a British Isles context. In any case, the northeast of the British Isles would be somewhere around Stornoway geographically. Or maybe Derry. I also split the United Kingdom into its constituent nations. It seems more logical. Professorbiscuit 19:30, 2 Dec 2004 (EST)
