I think the image oversimplifies things. Great Britain in this context is presumably the island not the former country, and England, Wales and especially Scotland contain a lot of other islands as well as being mostly in Great Britain - so all three of their circles should escape the circle of Great Britain.

Great Britain encompasses all the islands forming the country of Great Britain, which, as far as I'm aware still exists - it is after all a member of "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland". As the diagram shows this excludes CI & IOM & NI. Don't really matter though does it? Go, hie thee to Pedantry Corner. 16:32, 5 July 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
