Hello from another Swindoner.

If you're looking for an IT job in Swindon your best bet is looking into Nationwide (UK bank), Zurich (Insurance) or Intel who both major offices in Swindon.

You have to come visit my way (the lake district), it sounds like you would like it very much, it's a beautiful place and quite different to the rest of the country.
At least you have a sense of humour.

The Lake District is awful, non stop rain, 24/7. It's not even particurly pretty either just ordinary countryside, only thing thats different are the hills.

What's wrong with that? It is the the UK or Great Britain, England isn't an official country anymore, where have you been for the last 300yrs?

They are ignorant and you should correct them, they are southerners themselves, albeit English ones. Also, "they" were the ones who settled in the south, most of them ended up in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. I bet most of them are clueless of that historical fact

Sorry, I'm a bit of a history buff.

England is indeed a country, just as English is a nationality, same thing goes for Scotland and Wales. They are not provinces if that's what you think.

If you're not specific, then UK is fine.

It doesn't rain 24/7, although it does rain a lot, that's why we are so green.
You mean mountains, not hills.
