PSR - rather than "report as unsuitable" your comment I think you should be given the opportunity to apologise for the use of "Colonies." That is highly offensive.
I know many people think the UK/Britain and England are all interchangeable titles but this is an utter falsehood. The UK - for as long as it continues to exist at any rare - consists of two Countries (Scotland and England), a Principality (Wales) (these three forming Great Britain) and a Province (Northern Ireland).
Shame on you, I thought better of you.
