comment Why we need 'county' on UK address forms
@EricStoltz The thing is, that county is not just another field. For a great many people in the United Kingdom, the county is personal - a part of their upbringing. Yorkshire born and bred. People are proud of their county - it's part of their identity. So, yes some people really do want to include this as part of their address even though it's an extra field (but remember I said it should be optional). Automating the display of the county might confuse further since postcode always comes at the end of an address and people may have already included the county.

comment Why we need 'county' on UK address forms
@EricStoltz Yes that is a general principle to bear in mind, but never say never. What if it's a detail that the user wants to be able to provide (because they believe it is an important part of their address) but can't because the business doesn't technically need it.

comment Why we need 'county' on UK address forms
It's an odd situation isn't it! Users should be able to enter the County if they want to, but not if they don't. The business doesn't use the county because they don't need to. But the two contexts can be connected in a loop back to the user (via a delivered envelope), so it seems they ought to match. That suggests all parts of the loop either ignore or use the County. Since County is redundant, then that suggests we should ignore - but then we come back to managing user expectations. Redundancy for the sake of expectations? User expectation wins imho, so perhaps yes, system should use it.
