The Great British Venn Diagram

You're all smart people, so you probably know this, but here's a visual explanation of the political, ethnic, and geographic categories of the British Isles.

Also in Britain, polygamists will start receiving government benefits in proportion to their number of wives. I'm no expert on polygamy, but I thought the rule in such societies was you could take multiple wives if you could support them. Rich men get multiple wives; poor men get one or none. If you're on the dole, don't the extra wives have to go back to their father's house or something?
