Welcome aboard. I'll try to run down and get as many of your questions as I can

1) Don't be dissapointed you can't get Mr. Beer...you aren't missing much
2) I'm not familiar with the state of UK brewing suppliers (I'm sure one of the guys on your side will chime in), but here is a link to a complete kit to get you brewing Brewing Starter Kit :: Midwest Supplies Homebrewing and Winemaking Supplies All you need to add is a pot for boiling.
3) As far as learning, don't worry there will always be more to know, but a great place to start is here: How to Brew - By John Palmer - Introduction

New myself,
The hardest thing for me to do was fight the sanitation paranoia you will get from all of the "is my beer infected" posts. The solution is STAR SAN. Spray the hell out of everything and have no worries.

No matter how bad you screw up your first batch it will still taste better than Steel Reserve.

How much would you like to spend brewing equipment and your first recipie kit? I think today you could get away with spending as little as $40 on a first time setup, and $20 on a recipie kit.
