London...is it a sh1thole ?

#1
Ok , having to work in this festering cauldron of filth 4 days a week , I have came across the following observations. It stinks , its expensive, its filthy, unfriendly, dangerous in parts, roads are a nightmare & still charge you £8 for the privalage,its run down, has a fashist left mayor, no traffic wardens speak English, its overcrowed, the roads are potholed & rutted, the bus drivers are all w4nkers (dont even start me on Nigerian minicab drivers), nobody gives a feck , rude & arrogant , or stuck right up thier own ass.

Can you just imagine what a disaster the 2012 games are gonna be ? Is it about time this laughing stock of a Capital City got a kick up the arrse? Who else is,nt proud of thier Capital City ?

I have been to London many times I do enjoy visiting it and do know of a cheap place to stay while doing so, there is so much to see and do, Museums, sights, history, hidden interesting parts like Nottinghill market not far from Oxford Street, havin said that, I could not live there.

Was brought up in London and lived there for twelve years. I loved the place then, I have been back serveral times since I moved away in 1986 and it's worse everytime I go back. There always seems to be an increase in the cardboard city campers. 2012 looks like it's going to go Pete Tong.

So your either a refusnik who wishes to denigrate your birthright to ingratiate yourself with some sort of stoneage countryside tribe, or your a victim of false memory syndrome: despite what your family claimed - no doubt to wow the local primitives and secure a better place around the camp fire, you were never born in London.

I moved to London 17years ago, from a shitty wee town outside Glasgow (Greenock, if you must know :oops: ) There was mass unemployment, the start of a pretty heavy drug culture and a girl pissed me off. I left.

I now live a 25min train journey from the city centre and I get paid (well) above the national average for my job. I know that I'll NEVER be able to buy a property, that a pint is £3+ and that my neighbour is a dossing, migrant baby factory.

But...I've got some of the best museums in the world, great outdoor events in the summer (Foo Fighters AND Motorhead last year) and I get to play with all the little tourist girlies who pop over for Wimbledon Tennis

I love my hometown, I had a great time there as a kid and it's great to visit but I'm pretty fond of The Smoke too.

Personally I think it's great as large cities go.

It's got history, culture, beautiful architecture, superb museums and theatres, any sort of entertainment you would want, good communications - yes they are expensive and overcrowded but nevertheless it makes the whole city and surrounding suburbs easily accessible. High, well paid employment in a multitude of businesses and industries. Great shopping. It has everyone you'd want in a city.

The main concern for me was always the living expense and overcrowding but then all major capital cities have that problem. The Mayor is the real downer.

If you want a peaceful, quiet life - like I do now - then you don't live in a capital city.

Was it the writer Ben Johnson who many years ago said "He who is tired of London is tired of life" ?
edited to say it was Samuel Johnson

EARTH has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth like a garment wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

Wordsworth

Mate while I do love the 'bella, its hardly hidden. They made a blinking film about the area. How was it one local bobby described it to me at the time 'Ah yes 'Notting Hill', the ethnically cleansed film'
