That is total BS. I was in London back in December for a week. WE were treated GREAT by the British and I would personally move there in a heartbeat from here. The doctors are not nearly as good however adn the city is incredibly expensive to live in. YOu will need a GREAT job to live well there. The weather is not very good.

Shingen is talking out of his ass. I stayed in London for 2 months 2 years ago and everyone was cool. Regarding crime, the overall crime rate in London is moderately high by British standards, but is substantially lower than any major city in the U.S.

I'm in London for study abroad right now. You can read my Live journal if you want. It will help you get a feel for how I am liking the city. http://www.livejournal.com/users/dionysus2000/

dock hit the nail on the head. London is full of history, lots of tradition. Cold and miserable in Winter and Hot and smelly in Summer (Garbage bags on the street stink). But hey! welcome to england it's part of it's charm. You do have to be on a decent wage to live there, it is pretty expensive. Most people i know in London love/hate the place and are there only for their work. If you don't have to live there, there are some nice towns just out of London to live and comunte into the city...

Sanguine cynic, based on your blog you need to get yourself down to clapham, fulham, chelsea etc. Trust someone who has lived in london for the last 4 years. If you want the decent women, go out on Kings Road in Chelsea. Central london - leicester sq, picadilly etc is a shithole that the locals leave for the tourists and people from essex or the North.

Err, i've lived in London my whole life, and i still go down the west end all the time... As for Chelsea, sorry mate. Nice looking girls and all that, but they're some of the most stuck up people you're ever likely to meet on a night out. Richmond used to be nice when i went there, however.

The west end is fucking awful. Fine if you want to go hang around a load of turkish lads groping american tourists, or a bus load of 18 year old lads from essex. Horses for courses, but I honestly avoid going out there like the plague. Plus the decent clubs there are full of people so far up there own arse the chelsea set wouldnt even register on their scale. I would take a night out in Fulham, Putney, Islington, Old Street, Clapham, Brixton, Chelsea any day of the week over having to go in to the west end

Well i agree with horses for courses. Fulham, Islington and Old Street have all been blinding places to go on a night out. Brixton i wouldn't go to for all the tea in China, and Clapham has easily got to be the most over-rated night out in the history of the Earth. And if you're looking to avoid Turkish lads, anywhere from Haringey up to Edmonton is a no-go area, although i've always found the west end suprisingly Turk free. And pissed up American tourists are one of the best highlights of the west end! :p

I think London is a dump.. but then I may have been biased after seeing too many god damn Australians there. The Aussie girls are as bad as Essex girls - and the guys are the young dickhead type (generalisations, but fairly accurate!) I much much much preferred Edinburgh - beautiful city and great people. Also, Sepo is actually not meant in a derogatory manner, it's just a name.
