.... back in the mists of time it was UKP - which according to dictionaries is a still an acceptable, if non standard, acronym. Its interesting, actually, because the name of the 'country' is The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. I would have thought that Northern Ireland would have requested UKP be used, as they are so particular that they are part of the United Kingdom, but not part of Great Britain. The kind of thing that causes heads to spin!
