There are how many places on the planet that are not surrounded by water??
So what? Does that somehow shrink the island of Great Britain?
Or, as my Texas friend would say you are all hat and no cowboy.
No, but it does show that the largest two Canadian islands are larger than your whole empire and they are only part of one (1) Canadian territory.
But that still doesn't take away the fact that Great Britain is a huge island.
That's like saying that India isn't huge because Canada is bigger than it. It's like saying that Jabba the Hutt isn't huge because he's a lot smaller and better looking than Fat Jen the Team Leader at work.
