The phrase "British Isles"
:::I believe most users agreed on using British Isles except for a few Irish who felt sensitivity with the name. Britain and Ireland is a sort of compromise. --[[User:Globe-trotter|globe-trotter]] 06:49, 10 August 2010 (EDT)
::::I'm thinking the discussion would have been a lot less contentious if we'd ignored those folks. [[User:LtPowers|LtPowers]] 14:59, 10 August 2010 (EDT)
::::You mean by ignoring the Irish people that feel insulted for not even being recognised when you don't even include the name of their country (Ireland when talking about it ("British Isles"). Ireland is not British in any way, shape or form. You need to realise that they're may be more people in the UK than in Ireland but the opinion of most Irish people and our government still matter! IRELAND DOES NOT LIKE THE TERM "BRITISH ISLES"! It's almost a guarantee that if it were called the Irish isles then everyone in the UK would be unhappy. The only reason it's called British is because England held the power in the past but those days are over, it's the 21st century now and in a time of political correctness you have to recognise Ireland!
