I am a very, very happy bunny. Almost exactly a year ago I applied for an Arsenal Season Ticket. I paid my £15 deposit and I was number 32,306 in the waiting list (see image on left). There were 32,305 people in front of me. And what popped into my inbox last night? An invitation from Arsenal FC to go and choose my seat in the new Emirates Stadium! Part of the Ashburton Grove planning permission was that half of new season tickets go to Islington residents. YES! RESULT!

So at the end of this month both Paul and I will be tootling around to go and choose our seats. They range from "Lower Wing, Corner and Behind Goal" at £885 a year up to "Upper Centre" at £1825 a year (see image on right).

    So paying too much poll tax in Islington has finally paid off. Congratulations.
