...t the straight E/N - e.g. SX 60095 91123 (officers might recognise that one).
Really? Most struggle to recognise their own arrse when grabbed with both hands.....
 
I must admit, in UK I've always put inaccuracies down to my mapreading / GPS circle of accuracy... out of UK WGS84 seems reasonably well geo-referenced, I suppose you're going to tell me its not now....

Depends what you use it for, I use it for mapping wildlife records down to 1m square location grids, errors seem to be user input error rather than the referencing system

UTM is pretty standard for land navigation over sparse areas, I'm always conscious to have a compass for the correct mag. zone and a paper map backup - never had the need of a sun compass but I wish i'd had the opportunity to learn and practice with one, could be useful once the Zombie Apocalypse kick in and all the satellites burn up in the atmosphere....
An episode of great personal pride to me is leading my townie mates back to the cars in unforecast but very thick fog on Dartmoor a few years ago using nowt but map and compass, following the planned route to a tee.

We use UTM for survey work - ED50 on the Hayford elipsoid for oil and gas (gets a bit weird north of 62° on Noggin jobs, mind) and ETRS89 for wind farms.

Would it be fair to propose that, your expertise lies not with lat or long….but more so with depth? ;)

Mate, I've been living in the Black Country for 20 odd years, believe me, I'm looking forward to the improvements that the Zombie Apocalypse will bring.

I lived in Neilston and Barrhead for decades. Believe me, old bean, the Zombie Apocalypse happened there already and no-one noticed.
 
The mindless take over of British society by the woke/snowflake/pc/BLM/Anti Vax/ Greta Thunberg/ Anti-Rhodes/TV driven subliminal re-eductation/anti-Monarchist society at the present time is frightening.

We are being bullied into submission by an aggressive semi-ilterate segment of the population who are sadly lacking in life experience.

Thing is, the silent majority don't agree, and tend to win simply because of the way we vote. See 2019 general election.

The 2019 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday, 12 December 2019. It resulted in the Conservative Party receiving a landslide majority of 80 seats.[n 5] The Conservatives made a net gain of 48 seats and won 43.6% of the popular vote – the highest percentage for any party since 1979.

Would seem to speak for itself,

The vociferous, most heard, baying minority, are not in power.

Yes, well done, that was exactly what I was talking about...?
 
London’s Mayor who has assembled his unelected committee to decide which ‘racist’ statues to pull down and streets to re-name, has awarded himself a pay-raise, and is considering putting up a statue of himself.

BBC bans white people from applying for trainee job​

The BBC has banned white people from applying for a £18,000-per-year trainee job on Springwatch and The One Show - keeping the position open to ethnic minorities only.
Apparently this is legal to allow recruitment of trainee staff to represent the audience demographic.
I don’t see my local council introducing ‘women only shortlists’ to get more women riding the bin lorries though.

Maybe the BBC should ban white people from paying for their poxy licence fee as well. This does not mean that black, Asian etc viewers need to continue paying it, though. Feel free to cancel the fcukers as well.
