Purpose for this category

Others have asked, via email, about the purpose of this category. My reasoning is that Jersey and the Isle of Man are not part of any of the 5 main countries represented by the sub-categories England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales, but they can be classed as British/within Britain and hence the creation of this category. In my opinion creating a category for just one entry is pointless. The purpose of categories is to bring together similar articles. Sometimes a category will need splitting if the number of members becomes to great. Likewise a category with too few members should be reviewed and combined as appropriate. --Steve 17:16, 27 June 2011 (UTC)
