 I remember many years ago, in London, standing with my late wife waiting for a bus. By the bus stop was a sort of deli. It was closed (it was a Sunday), but we were looking at the very appealing window display.

One lunatic started ranting on about foreigners invading us and that would shouldn't buy that alien muck! Then he spotted some tea in the window.

"Look at that! Effing Ceylon tea! Chinese muck!" (Geography clearly wasn't his strong point!) "Buy proper English tea!"

My wife replied  "Yes. Grown in the plantations of Kent, no doubt!"

"No you idiot! It's grown in Yorkshire!"

The entire bus queue was cracking up with laughter.

I am not going to comment on that.

I meant that the difference between the UK, Britain and the constituent members is not difficult to understand. Yet, few people do.

Absolutely. Depending on my mood I will do it one way or the other. Sometimes it might depend on what I am going to add to the toasted sides
