This is a valid point, and i've never quite felt happy with the name
either to be honest.  Therefore I have changed the name of the list to
"UK Ubuntu Talk", which isn't ideal in itself either.  However, it's
certainly better than it was.

I should raise the attention that this *could* break peoples auto
sorting rules, as you'll note:
Reply-To: British Ubuntu Talk <ubuntu-uk at lists.ubuntu.com>
List-Id: British Ubuntu Talk <ubuntu-uk.lists.ubuntu.com>

Will now change to:
Reply-To: UK Ubuntu Talk <ubuntu-uk at lists.ubuntu.com>
List-Id: UK Ubuntu Talk <ubuntu-uk.lists.ubuntu.com>

Depending how you sort the mailing lists, this could be a non-issue. 
For others it could temporary break it, i can offer my apologies, but
hope you can see why this has been changed.

Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
