Still noticable white blob left of centre in that picture Crying or Very sad

Anyway, for those of you who fly into UK frequently, have you checked out the way to avoid immigration queues for UK Citizens ?.

I tried it earlier this month at LGW, and while there was a long line waiting to get thru UK passport control, I went to a separate line - with no-one in front of me, stared into a mirror and was let through in about 20-30 seconds.

We had local celebrations here at the border last night at midnight - very strange to see the 2 border guards, 1 from each side, dismantle the last border sign. In an hour's time, we have 5 assorted ministers from the 2 countries arriving for official celebrations, with TV cameras and all.

Quite exciting and very moving. A long way from November 1989 but still important as the final step to a united Europe, in the middle at least!
