Edinburgh is my favourite English city

I found a bunch of impressive post apocalyptic images of Britain today, created to help promote the new video game Horizon: Zero Dawn, posted here by Unilad with the title This is what Horizon Zero Dawn would look like in England.

For example, here is my city.

Mind you, I have walked the streets at 6.45 am on a Sunday morning, the resemblance is uncanny. I have to say the street cleaners do a damn fine job.

Below, is Edinburgh.

Edinburgh is a beautiful setting for such a story.

Haaang on, Edinburgh is an English city? Dublin and Cardiff too? I understand that it is a British website, so before I start a post with ‘Dear World’… maybe I have to look inward to find why the UK is still being labeled as England. No wonder the rest of the UK (and Ireland) hate us…

It reminds me of the time Grand Theft Auto took a stab at this. Introducing Frankie Boyle with ‘All the way from Scotland, England’. I don’t often say this, heck I probably won’t ever again, but I recommend you read the comments and not the actual video if you are easily offended. Classic Frankie material here.

At least they were making a point (much of the Rockstar team are Scottish and based in Edinburgh). I mean how hard is it to differentiate between England, the UK and Ireland?

Again, alternate facts is an epidemic passed on by more than Donald Trump, even if he is given the credit for it.
