What's the deal with that island?

Have you ever wondered what the difference between England, Great Britain, and the United Kingdom was? I have. It's always been kinda the same thing to me. There's this big island in Europe and it looks kinda like a dog. That dog-shaped island's the UK/Great Britain/England. And it's supposed to have Scotland somewhere too. Just found out from Wikipedia today that the landmass of Scotland is actually just the upper portion of England. That's kinda confusing. At least Ireland has its own island to differentiate itself.

Just started wondering about it cause people said Andy Murray was Scottish, not British. I dunno. He might be both, right? Could he even be English? Didn't the Scottish fight the English in Braveheart? Okay, maybe he can't be English. But he could be British and a UKer.
