Actually, 2 years ago there was a bill (or whatever the hell the brits call it) in parliament proposing that all kitchen knives over a certain length (I think it was 2 inches) be banned.
It really doesn't matter over there anyway...you don't have any right to self defense, so even if guns were legal you'd be screwed.
I mis-spoke...the ban never made it to government.
