    Any London opticians out there in cyberspace? Was in London last weekend, en route back home, my daughter is there for a few weeks studying art history, had a great visit. But everything there was outrageously expensive! Do people make a lot more money there to offset the high prices? Gasoline is five times as expensive and we're complaining. A glass of iced tea was $6.00. WOW! Thanks be for how reasonable things are here! Al.

    Well if you will go to london you got to pay the prices, We just bump em up for the tourists. :D
    1 Do we make more money er NO (i'm going to get it in the neck for this but!) unless you are an optician.
    2 petrol price its the goverment who tax it by so much (think its 85% of price is tax) this is to try to stop us using our cars, but when the guy (john prescot) in charge wife wont walk 100 yards coz the wind will ruin her hair do and has to use a gas gulzing jag, will it stop us NO.
    3. whats wrong with going to macdonalds and letting a cup of tea going cold bout 50p.

    Hope you enjoyed it, though get out of london and things are cheaper.
    Best wishes from a skint brit.
