I went a few years ago. There's actually surprisingly few restrictions on photography - just one or two occasions in 8 days when we were asked to refrain.

However, on the train back to Beijing, NK...

I've done it and would highly recommend it if you're interested in that sort of thing.

DLA is not in any way means tested, so if people want to put extra money towards a flash car then that's perfectly OK.

As a teacher, there's no way I would ever resort to hitting a pupil even if I was "allowed" to.

A complete and total non-starter.

Yes, they do.

Every England home cricket match starts with a rendition of Jerusalem played over the PA system, to which the crowd loudly sing along.
