I really think you are making it more of a deal than it is. UK is a European country, and forever it shall be, so saying that there is a British and an European oboe keywork style is like saying there is a German and European clarinet keywork style.

Get it? No political issue, just found it funny you making a distinction between two practices that are both European (and in the world for that matter, since everyone uses one of both, disregarding the dual and simple systems).
I'm not British, but I think it's fairly common knowledge that Brits regularly use the term "Europe", colloquially, to refer to continental Europe (or, these days, to the EU). There's nothing really unusual about it.

Objecting to this is like objecting to a US resident making a distinction between "Americans" and "Canadians". At best, it comes off as pedantic.
