You can select it later during installation, though. As a British
English speaker myself, this doesn't really bother me all that much;
it's not as if the boot loader text would be significantly different,
and I want to avoid loading up the boot loader screen with too many
choices. It's just there to let you get at a language you can read and a
keyboard mapping that matches your keyboard in order that you can read
the boot menu choices and edit boot options by hand if you need to.

I'm not saying we'll never change this, but I don't think it's a very
high priority. At present, the only language variants that you can
select in the boot loader are pt vs. pt_BR and zh_CN vs. zh_TW; there
are good reasons for both of these, as they are really quite different
languages, and the Chinese ones actually use different scripts. These
arguments don't apply to en_GB, so it would have to go along with fr_CA,
de_AT, es_MX, and so on, which would really require a new UI.

No en_GB option
