Didn't read the article, full disclosure!

The declaration of an emergency in an aircraft, GA or part 121, is just that, We need priority handling and nothing else will do! Many a professional pilot has avoided those words in a direct response implied by the fear of the consequences. Don't be afraid to use the term or accept the consequences,and by the same token, don't use it lightly. When used properly,it might save your life, and those of 72 others. ATC is sittin' in a well guarded space.

Sorry to burst your Little Englander bubble, mate.

Agree with bandrunner , what's the point of being specific in terms of geography since the UK covers 4 countries as well as terms like North Sea oil. Enjoy your bubble.
