Just seen on BBC.com that the American and German Embassys in London is refusing to pay the congestion charge. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/4352520.stm most recent http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/2260203.stm few years ago. They are claiming diplomatic immunity. On the ground that they see it as a "TAX" where as ken sees it as a charge. Personally I see it as day light robbery given how much I already pay on car tax etc.
