Not just in Britain - as I noted several post up, it means that in Australia, and to the best of my knowledge that's what it means in every native English-speaking country except the USA and maybe Canada, which picks up a lot more US influence.

Australia isn't part of Britain. New Zealand isn't part of Britain. The Republic of Ireland, while part of the British Isles, is not part of Great Britain. India, South Africa, and so on. All places where English is either the native language or one of them, all not Britain.

It irritates me when Americans act like they're the only English speakers outside the UK.
