England Deserves its Own Domain!
Heard the one about the Englishman, the Scotsman, the Welshman and the internet?
Trouble is, it's not that funny. Not if you're the Englishman, anyway.
For many years the UK's online entity has been represented by the co.uk domain extension. The Welsh and the Scots have been campaigning for their own country-specific domains .cym and .sco respectively, despite not being classed as independent countries.
But what about the English? Er... well... hmmm. A deafening silence. Until now.
We believe that we - the English - should also be allowed our own independent voice on the internet and show our patriotism through our choice of domain name.
To do this, We're collecting signatures on our online petition so we can lobby ICANN (the people in charge of internet domain names) to make .eng available.
Please sign the petition so we can make sure a corner of the Internet remains Forever England.
Sign The Petition!

|If Scotland can have .scot we should get .eng|

|Engineers would want to use .ENG to represent engineering. I see confusion. It's way easier to spell .ENG than .ENGINEERING|

|I fully support this move especially in the light of possible Scottish independence. However, we should support this move wether Scotland becomes independent or not. I shall certainly promote it as much as possible through the social media networks I use like Twitter. (I use @UnderEnglishOak).|

|it is obvious that the establishment fear the English identity and discriminate against us. The BBC in particular always refer to Scotland and Wales in reports and always use a Scot or Welsh journalist, but when it comes to England it's called the UK and most journalists are not English, look at BBC news night, more and more Scottish commentators then it splits to BBC Scotland news night, I bet they are not English Commentators!. Almost every other TV advert is a Scottish voice, everything made in Scotland is referred as Scottish, if it's made in England it's called made in 'UK' or 'British'. Royal navy work transferred to Scotland, Space Programme probably Scotland, NS&I Scotland, English GP Health records sent to Scotland, call centres (Tesco) Scotland etc, in addition to this shed loads of Barnett Formula Money. During the last Iraq war Scottish soldiers were seen trying to be friendly with the locals by saying they were Scottish not British, i.e. basically this was to blame the English, who took us to Iraq? Blair, Brown, Reed and Darling etc. all Scottish but us English get the blame. Other than London the English do not get much out of the 'British' government at least they could give us our own 'Domain', it would not cost much?, perhaps if the Scottish dominated 'Blair' (B'liar) British government that dished out devolution to the so-called UK (what really is former United Kingdom of f.U.K) had included England then our English government would have wanted a Domain name, but an English government? the Scottish Tories think England does not need a parliament just regional assemblies will do them/us, cheeky B******s the quicker Scotland goes independent the better, we may one day get recognition, no government since 1707 is a long time One last thing when people talk nostalgic, lets say about old cars or motorcycles and say British Bikes or cars just remind them they were made in 'England'.
