When I lived in England, I always considered myself "English". But when I moved to the United States, americans would always refer to me as being
"British". I rarely get called english here.
Frankly I don't care...as long as you know what I am talking about, and what country that is, its fine.
So the difference between, Britain, England, United Kingdom, The Commonwealth in my head is as follows:
Britain = England
United Kingdom = England, Wales, Scotland
Commonwealth = The above, Canada, Australia + Bahamas, Jamaica etc.
