International market is quite a busy one, IMO.

And if your business is regional based, then you can just go on and increase your SERPs position for regional google.

Yes. People who don't speak english fluently, avoid using spell checker. They are sometimes wrong and not perfect.

British people are more inclined to click on a .co.uk website rather than a .com one. So it's always best to have a redirect to a .co.uk version of your site if you own a .com extension.
