  • Burma is the place on Google maps that is marked "Myanmar (Burma)" and is commonly referred to as "Burma". No need to get your knickers in a knot. Next you'll be saying we need to call the Falkland Islands the "Malvinas".

  • Often brits hardly know where all these territories are. They got to know the Malvinas/Falkands just because of the 1982's war (and now the Meryl Streep film). And you even find mistakes on the Foreign Office website!

  • I may be wrong but as I understand it, Myanmar is the name preferred by the military dictatorship which has imprisoned, tortured and killed thousands of its own people, whereas Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi and her supporters, including the Burma Campaign UK, are happy for the name Burma to be used. Your choice...

  • It's been my experience that Yanks are one of the most insular peoples on this planet. Tell me again how many don't have a passport? A bit much accusing brits of their geographical ignorance.
