When marketing emails go slightly wrong

From my email today, this is a charming attempt from an Indian software company to make themselves look relevant:

Dear Leigh,
Hope you are well.
It was a pleasure to travel to some very nice cities like Crawley, Brighton, Worthing, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham, Stevenage, Bushy, Cambridge, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Oxford, London and meet some very nice people.

British readers will spot several obvious flaws in this assertion. I will try to avoid offending readers around the country by suggesting which are the flaws.

Subtle insults; I like.

Birmingham's lovely but London's an absolute toilet.

What? Taxi? For me?
