Posted in: Why is the UK called Igirisu in Japanese? See in context

@Star-viking as Professor of Geopolitics at NUI Maynooth Gerry Kearns puts it “Whenever someone refers to all those islands off the coast of Europe as the British Isles, they are engaged in some unconscious anglo-centrism.” >. There is also a Wikipedia article about the dispute. But my personal take on it is .. it is talking about two countries one British and one not. So why call them British. I like the term western European Archipelago. There are lots of other former colonial names that are no longer deemed appropriate to use as well.

The British isles is a colonial term no longer used nor is it recognised by the Irish government. The Republic of Ireland are Irish not British. People born in Northern Ireland can be either be Irish or British if they are born there. But we are all European's.
