It’s the UK, not England - but for the London, Anglo-centric vibe, you’d think it was just England. Never mind, roll on the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014!- where Buckfast will be drunk copiously (or at least the assumption by commentators will be thus), and there will be many an English snigger about the unfittiness and alcoholism of Scots in general, no one will care quite so much, and there will be a curious political and cultural seething about the upcoming independence referendum. All in all it will be a far less overexposed and more interesting and unpredictable event.
