Err, I think you'll find, on analysis, that living in the past is a condition of forum membership. That said, I feel at home, surrounded by so many Uncle Alberts 😀

You were right the first time. England and Wales are nations, as is Scotland.
I was referring to UKGB&NI as a nation. Must agree to differ and get back to boating now, far more important, bilges to paint, decks to scrub, ensign to lower to half.
