I've been known to tell people I come from an island just off the coast of Belgium...when asked which island I say Great Britain.

Most of the Netherlands is made of soil washed from the cliffs and beaches of East Anglia.

Can we have it back? Is there a leasing opportunity we've missed?

We were very insulted when Napoleon called us a 'mere estuary' - and now: et tu Brute!

Well, at least the Delta Barrier has stopped a large part from washing back to East Anglia, a cunning plot by the perfidious British to gain more territory!

eta: Under cover of darkness the entire island will be towed to NL territory in the Waddenzee. (Don't tell the Germans - we've got quite a few islands that way if you look at the map) flag

OK Tigger, we'll resist our usual urge to go stick the Union flag where it ain't wanted.

Though the Dutch gave us something back when their engineers came over to help us recover The Fens...

(though only after Oliver Cromwell and the British Parliament had succeeded in carrying out the death penalty on King Charles I, in the days before the Human Rights Act made that a breach of one's human rights):

Work to drain the Fens had begun in the years preceding the outbreak of the civil war. Led by the Earl of Bedford and the Dutch engineer Vermuyden, the project had had the backing of King Charles 1st. Oliver Cromwell, as a man of the Fens, took an active interest in the project but was initially against the scheme, mainly because of the king's involvement. However, after the execution of King Charles, Cromwell gave his full support to Vermuyden, and work to drain the Fens began again in earnest.

Here's Eddie Izzard on Britain and flags, one of my favourite clips as long as you don't mind the f word. Stealing countries!
