With due respect Chris, 
how is this related to Andrew's original query?

Moreover,  judging from Andrew's email address, 
I can tell he's based in the UK, so a UK VPN is 
totally irrelevant here...

Also, earlier in this very thread, you posted:

as a reply to Budgie's Radio 4 issue, who is also 
located physically in the UK...

If you were a first time poster to the list, 
I'd definitely say you are spamming the list 
with Hola plugs... Please stop doing it...

(And I personally have no problem with it, 
but both the list maintainer (David Woodhouse) 
and the code maintainer (dinkypumpkin - sadly 
no longer posts here) have made it clear 
that mention of geo-blocking circumvention 
methods is not tolerated - especially in a public 
list that is indexed by Google and, most probably, 
monitored by BBC personnel...)
