Arhhh. but

"Correction - Poscodes will not be free"

The government and others seem to be learning lessons the hard way  
about the many difference versions of 'free' and 'free'. The Royal  
Mail is offering free beer (well a maximum 4 sips a day as long as you  
don't get much joy from it), the BBC thought it was going to be free  
speech, or was it the government who though that 4 sips a day was what  
we wanted, anyway, I think a lot of people in government are going to  
be paying a lot more attention to licenses from these organisations in  
the near future and scratching their heads.
