Yes, just as well, thank you. I misinterpreted the map on the EBU website as 
including Scotland and Wales, which indeed are separate NBFs, thereby 
justifying the name of English Bridge Union, I suppose, even though the two 
Channel Islands (Guernsey and Jersey) and the Isle of Man are part of the 
EBU but politically not part of England (nor of Great Britain nor of the 
United Kingdom).
