You can't count Greenwich Mean Time - in those days Greenwich was part of Kent !

Incidently, I frequently buy beer at under £1.50 per pint in London - try Wetherspoons.

Far be it for me to point out what I mean by London's Metrocentricity but Gloucester gave us Dick Whittington. London Stole him away with falacious stories of gilt-ridden thouroughfares.

Yep... London is the biggest and the best - the biggest pile of (......*) and the best place to put it.
