    Oil and Gas

    I remember very well the oil in Poole harbour - It gunged up the prop on my inflatable! It was the first time I'd ever seen crude oil, and I've worked hard ever since to ensure that it's the last time I have to interact with it

    United Kingdom comprises (for now) Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    So the Isle of Man and the Channel Isles (Jersey, Guernsey, etc) are part of Great Britain, but they are not part of the United Kingdom.
    Not quite correct. The island of Great Britain is the big island which comprises most of Scotland, England and Wales.
    There are many smaller islands which form part of the British Isles and the United Kingdom but not of Great Britain, for example Skye (Scotland), Anglesey (Wales), Wight (England).

    Isle of Man and the Channel Isles are part of the British Isles but not of Great Britain.
    They are not part of the United Kingdom but as they rely on the United Kingdom Government for foreign affairs they are "British Crown Dependencies".

    All very complicated and confusing!
