Note to Venetian: England is not THE UK

The Venetian is holding court in the moan throan tonight! As we are attending the PurposeInc Poker Tournament, graciously hosted at the Venetian, we were required to sign up for the club membership in order to play.

Reasonable request, until the form presented us with a drop down to choose the country we live in…. see where this is going? Here’s the short version:

No Scotland

No United Kingdom

No UK

No Britain

No Great Britain

So what’s left?

England! WTF?! The last time I checked we did not live in England and England was not a synonym for the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom is made up of 4 separate countries: Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland…. has nobody seen Braveheart, for the love of god…
