I tend to agree that British English is the "correct" version for me, 
since I'm European, though not British.

The usage of -ise in verbs, however, is a newer attempt to set the 
British English apart from the American:

Being a non-native English speaker/writer, I myself stick to the 
recommendations of the Oxford dictionary.
