In England you need to buy a license to watch tv... 121 pounds to be exact. That gets you the right to have several colour tv's at the registered premise. They even have license inspectors who drive around trying to catch people out.

Doing it now... ok.. after I get some lunch... [9/9/2004 Ammendment] If I was smarter/wiser I would have burnt the cds before eating. Why? Because theres no chance of dropping food on the laptop. Fortunately tho that didnt actually happen.

I'm sure I said this before in a previous entry, but London (and europe) is old and coming from Australia can be bit of a shock. Much of the infrastructure and culture is also old. ATM's for example is much slower than back home in OZ.
One thing that doesn't seem to change is government inefficiency... I refer to the NI number entry down below.
Their charm tends to wear off after watching several go by because they are packed full and the conductor only lets one person to board.
