By the way the country problem do not exist since, according with ITU, 
the "M" alone is not a country prefix.<

I can't address what the ITU may or may not have said, but our licenses are
issued by countries, not by the ITU.  "M" definitely is a country prefix. 
Reciprocal licenses issued by the U.K. licensing authority for operation in
England carry the "M" prefix (for example, "M/W1XXX") have have done so
since 1996.

Note that I am NOT referring to CEPT privileges, although this may well
apply to that too; I just don't have the prefix list handy.  I am referring
to actual license documents issued by the U.K., which show a specific
callsign to be used.
