I saw this too, and it's ALMOST very good, but he still makes a couple of fundamental mistakes.To start with, only England and Scotland could ever be described as 'sovereign nations'.

He also falls into the trap of confusing England with the UK when he mentions religion. Her Maj is only head of the Church of England.

To be fair, these things have been pointed out on his blog (some of the comments were unnecessarily chippy, I thought; at least the man's making an effort, and he got most of it right)

Just don't get me started on 'What is Britain?...
