London Wins "crap Town" Title

Recommended Posts

http://www.itv.com/news/london/story/2013-10-07/london-gets-crap-town-title/

The author of a book which declared that the capital was top of a list of the UK's 'crap towns' has recalled complaints from Londoners who were polled on their opinion of the city.

London is crap for all sorts of reasons. Partly it's the misery of living there: the expense, the endless queueing, the standing on the Northern line with your nose jammed into someone else's armpit, the amount of time and psychological energy it takes to go anywhere or do anything

We were deluged with complaints from people who have to put up with the inconvenience of living in this expensive, hard city, with people from outside the city who feel London has given them a raw deal, taking away billions of pounds in the crash, and yet somehow managing to keep all the proceeds of the recovery..

Sounds a bit like what the West has done to the rest of the world, with the BRICs' recovery now stalling.

When you hear locals repeatedly parroting how great a place is, you know it isn't. They're attempting to self-brainwash. They used to do that a great deal in parts of west Wales, like Pembrokeshire. They often do it in London. Always a warning sign.
