Just for shits and giggles, I decided to look up the price of a rented apartment in the West End, and found this:

When I lived in the north, my mum's south-dwelling siblings would come to visit and spend time looking at the property pages in the local paper. They would marvel at how cheap the houses were. Now I live in Cambridge, my family visit me, and cry laughing when they look at the local property pages.

One of my Uncles lived in Grantchester in the 1980s, even at that time, he and two other teachers shared a house because on their salaries none of them could have afforded a solo dwelling in the area.

I note that the Mayfair apartment is also a 2015 price. Heaven knows what it is now.

My aunt used to own a house opposite Wandsworth Common with her first husband. They bought it for around 13,00 if I recall correctly.
They parted ways and the ex-husband still owns the place. It's now worth upwards of 2 million.

@Jenny. I think that is the current price, it's just that it's been listed since 2015.

Can't imagine why they haven't found a tenant yet..........

Could one play Monopoly using today's rental and property prices?
I guess one would have to put a few zeroes on the notes. Even the Old Kent Road must be worth more than 50 these days.

That's exactly what they did, at least with the Dutch edition: add two or three zeroes, I forget which.

A Marvellous and Most Instructive Information Document.

aka, the tour rider for Iggy & The Stooges from 2006.

A sample...

Oh yes, and Iggy adores breaking cameras. Did I mention that??
So really it's best not to get too close to him. Especially if he looks at you in a funny way.
And cameramen - if he heads towards you looking like he's about to grab the camera - he's probably about to grab the camera. It's a sort of clue...

I was in a branch of Boots. They have dummy packs of Viagra on the shelves. A chap asked about it and a Boots lady explained that you have to ask at the counter and complete a questionnaire before they sell it to you.i listened in on the conversation.
"Is there a lot of demand for it?" asked the chap.
"It goes up and down...."

He started giggling. She started giggling and I joined in.
