Yep, that would be what I understand as "clock format". So go up to
the panel which displays your clock, alt-click it, and select
properties. Under "Clock Options", you'll see "Format" set to "Custom
Format". Underneath that there's a text-box. The US will have it set
to "%a, %d %b %H:%M". But since you're in the UK, you'll want to
switch up the day and month (%d and %b): like so "%a, %b %d %H:%M".
For more flag parameters, open up terminal and enter "date --help".

Yes, but you can change your keyboard to any language in
"Settings> Settings Manager> Keyboard> Layout" anyway. As far
as the date system goes; well, I'm not sure what you mean by
"date system". If you mean the clock format, that can be changed
by alt-clicking the clock in the it's panel and selecting
properties.



By date system I mean that in UK we write dates as dd/mm/yyyy while
in the US they use mm/dd/yyyy.

OK, I have had a look at that but, it is not the clock that is the
problem it is the calendar. Xubuntu uses Orage which does not have the
facility to set the start day of the week. In my versions of KDE (Mint
KDE and Kubuntu) I can use the system settings page to go to Locale
and set the first day of the week. I can't find anything like that is
Xfce.
