Using an EV for commuting- still not practical in Scotland in 2012!

There have been big fanfares and trumpeting of EV charging provisions in the UK- making using an EV for commuting a reality..

As of today, this is my reality-

Green dot= home, Yellow dot= Work



No public charging stations anywhere near where I'm using the vehicle..

Additionally, reading the Leaf website- I see that there is a charge for getting a home charging point installed?

and lastly- anyone any idea how EV's could be used by people staying in Flats/condos etc? Cant see a way to have home charging?!
