I've always believed that aside from hosting a Games, Team GB's identity should be decided competitively as sport intended, where possible. So if any of the British teams do well enough to qualify, they have main controlling rights over the team, but are allowed to reach out to whichever other British countries they wish to collaborate with, who are able to accept or decline the offer.
If two or more qualify and no bobsleigh-style multi-team solution has been invented, then they are forced to collaborate (remaining Euro U21/WWC spots decided by play-offs as present), perhaps with The FA representing by name as they currently do, should England be one of those teams. Of course, it isn't just the traditional 4 that have to be considered here, I look forward to the day when only Scotland qualify, then only invite Herm and Pitcairn Islands to work with them out of spite...
Also, these jokes about England not being capable of making it are unfair, 5th successive qualification this year to a tournament known for inconsistency long-term, and would have qualified for the 2008 Olympics without the technicalities. For reference purposes, Scotland last qualified in 1996
. Also, we have a new Semi-Final penalty shoot-out victim in charge now:
