It was certainly used a lot around the time it was being built and was first in operation, but to be honest, I can't remember the last time I heard or read the word (other than on Jetpunk) - it think it's fallen out of usage somewhat.

As far as I remember, it was a tem used in the newspapers around the time the tunnel was built. I don't believe it ever made it into the vernacular.

Kate is now Katharine, so that should be accepted as an answer. In fact, it should be the answer!

100% it should be only Catherine. And it since it doesn't start with a K, it needs to be re~/moved.

I live on The South Coast and I've near heard of this 'Chunnel' portmanteau. As far as I was concerned, it was just simply The Channel Tunnel.

You alright there bud? Briton is a name derived from Latin, so wasn't used by the "original" Britons anyway, it's a place more than an ethnicity. And Wallace was born in Scotland, was the son of a Scot and died for Scotland. Not sure how you guys can claim him.

There were more than 8 King Edwards. The regnal numbers only go back as far as the Norman conquest. Edward the Confessor was the one they were all named after, and he reigned 1042-1066, and was certainly King of all England! Some would count Alf the Great's son Edward the Elder (899-924) and Edward the Martyr (975-978). So we could be talking 11. Certainly no less than 9.

There were also "Edwards" of Ireland and Portugal though that's obviously being a little pedantic given that it's a quiz about the UK.

Welp, I don't know if it's just my ignorance of sports trivia, but it seemed that most answers here were obvious/common knowledge except for the rival team question. That seems a particularly obscure detail to know, by comparison.

I understand why you would usually accept Saxon without the s in the end, but it kind of defeats the purpose of this quiz, doesn't it? Saxons needs its second s to keep the chain going...

The answer to that question doesn't work. Celtics rivals are Sevco, or also know as FOBs.
