Are there any scorpion breeders in UK preferably those who breed buthids? Either invert hobby is dead in UK or I'm not being able to get in touch with right people because I can barely find anything other than heterometrus, Hadogenes, chaerlus or occasionally some vaejovis.

I am aware keeping Buthids require a DWA license. How hard is it to get one? Do most keepers even follow this rule?

It depends where in the country you are. Just apply to your local council. Some make it easy and reasonably priced, others make you jump through hoops and pay a fortune to get a licence.
I know years ago many didn't bother and it was easy to get by Buthids shipped in from Germany.
