This should possibly be three questions. –  American Luke Sep 14 '12 at 17:30
The last one definitely needs to be its own question. I'm tempted to edit it out of this one. –  T.E.D. Sep 14 '12 at 17:46
What should I do? –  Daniel Pendergast Sep 14 '12 at 17:58
I'm with @Luke. Take the last two bullets and make them each their own questions. Among other benefits, this may net you more total upvotes. :-) –  T.E.D. Sep 14 '12 at 18:51
@T.E.D. Haha alright. –  Daniel Pendergast Sep 14 '12 at 23:51

The short answer is: no. Egypt formally became a British protectorate only in 1914, but de facto already in 1882. It's all (briefly) told here.
