Wiipedia agrees with me. I guess the sentiment remains the same though.

QUOTE (Wikipedia - Finger (Gesture))
In the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, the V sign (given with the back of the hand towards the recipient) serves a similar purpose (primarily "Fuck off"), whilst "the bird" is more often used for "up yours", "swivel on it", "sit and swivel on it" or "sit and spin".
