I apologise if that’s the way it came over, Steve, but allow me to explain my thinking. To my mind Christopher Ward is a British company because they are based in the UK. anOrdain is a British Company for the same reason, and will continue to be so in my mind until such time as Scotland is no longer a part of the UK.welshlad wrote: ↑Sat May 29, 2021 1:19 pm The slogan is Ingeniously English.

Yet the "English" part seems to get interpreted as "British":
I mean this as absolutely no criticism of the posters above, including my esteemed Admin Team colleagues, as that is the interpretation I generally would expect from people in England or from outside the UK. England and Britain become conflated.
I may use the term British to describe citizens of the UK, but I will never refer to them as English unless I mean very specifically people from England.
In football and rugby, of course, it’s a whole different ball game (if you’ll pardon the pun).
