  • How large is the Portugese invasion force? Just 2?

    Hmm. Which makes me wonder, is this the first Portugese invasion attempt on the UK? Historically has the UK ever actually been at war with Portugal?

    Anyway, prepare to meet our fearsome definsive arsenal:

    • People speaking English (not loudly and not slowly)
    • Imperial units of measurement
    • Driving on the left
    • Coins with seven sides
    • Mains sockets with rectangular pins
    • Cricket
    • Main sockets with rectangular pins... nice you remembered. Can I get a conversor somewhere there, or should I try to find one here in Portugal? Cheers.
      • I wandered into the hardware shop near work and they didn't seem to sell them, so I'd assume that the answer is "no", at least not easily. You could buy one in Portugal, or you could opt for an alternative plan that might be cheaper:

        1. buy an extension lead with a plug that can be unscrewed
        2. unscrew the plug and leave it at home
        3. buy a British plug here
        4. fix it to your extension lead

        You now have a lead which converts from British to continental shapes, and can rent the other spaces on it to anyone who didn't
