Now don’t get me wrong, I love London Court, despite, or perhaps because of how ridiculous the premise was and how out of place it is. For overseas worsters, London Court is a shopping centre built in Olde Englande style, in 1937. From the website, London Court is, “The only walk in the world outside Britain that has captured a setting and atmosphere so similar to that of Tudor England…”
That the chiming of the clock is one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions perhaps says more about Perth than London Court. Small crowds would gather when I was a kid to watch St George sluggishly poke a dragon, on one side, and knights joust on the hay Street side. And they still gather to watch it even today!
Brett at Freebeer reported an idiotic statement from ABC Chief Kim Dalton, calling for enforced Australian quotas on Australian broadband content! Has the man never used the internet? Just to keep Kim a little bit happier and increase Australian online content a little more, here is a video I made for TWOP television showing the frenzy that surrounds the chiming of the clock at London Court in Hay street. You won’t want to miss it.
