Years ago I obtained a similar visa at the consulate in LA. Nice plush 
place on Wilshire Blvd.  When I went to Cr*yd*n to obtain Indefinite 
Leave to Remain, the contrast could not have been more stark. I suspect 
there may have been some redecorating done at the Home Office premises 
there since that time. I hope so, at any rate - what a shithole.
