    Yeah, i know where Gatwick airport is! Who was it that didn't? We should have a TSR outing around UK's aiports to further our geographical knowledge of our own country! This is nearly as bad as Jade Goody thinking that East Anglia was abroad!

    No it's not in London.

    It's on the way down from London towards Brighton. The Airport is called London Gatwick though.

    But imagine all the Japanese business men... they'd think there were going to end up in rurality and only go to Heathrow. Thus Gatwick would lose all its custom and thus start making huge losses which would in turn plunge the entire local economy into a downward spiral and thus Sussex would go under and thus England would flounder and then Britain and then perhaps the entire European economy. And then Bush's armies wou- hmm, maybe not.

    Nah, I like London Gatwick actually.

    No I think you have a point. I think it's a staple of railway companys' income.

    Heathrow's hardly in London though, is it?

    Closer to the M25, but I think the motorway's a bit further from central London in the West.


    As for me, yes I do indeed know where Gatwick is. I'm near Croydon, so I'm on the same rail line


    What's the curiosity about?

    Yeah I'd imagine so. The Gatwick Express is great - but damn expensive.
