Web Peeve #03: UK Nationality

It’s notoriously difficult to understand what is and isn’t the UK , but it’s usually a given that when we’re asked to select our nationality online, we’d scroll down the list looking for the United Kindgom. Frustratingly, some sites insist that we should be selecting England, Britain, or Great Britain. Neglecting which is more correct, the web would be more pleasant if sites were just more consistent.

Today’s guilty site was my University’s accommodation booking form. Even more shameful given that it’s British, or is that English? Confusing!
