Watch the video, London police now drives scooter scum off their bikes. It is not all only the soft approach.

I'll bow out of this thread

I just wanted to establish if there were any Londoners in here - there's not

You say Game has never left you but you have 0/209 reps on your game so when was it ever established? It wasn't an attack but it seems you "feel" that way.

I will be more sensitive next time

Piss off with that condescending stuff. You're not a Londoner either, you're an Australian who moved here as an adult and has since decided to become an arbiter on what is and isn't acceptable to discuss about the place. Plus, you're on record as saying you think the rest of England is a "shit hole" (despite the fact you haven't even been to said places), and no - us being friends on whatsapp isn't going to stop me criticising the snarky and arrogant tone you use on here. It's incredibly irritating.

If you've never met a forum member - I'll assume you're lying

RE: R.I.P. London
Man, unreal...it's an offence to express your emotions, and 'London Is Open'

This place HAS BECOME hell...

I can walk for an hour through my neighbourhood and not hear English once. That's no exaggeration.

It's got to the point that I can't leave home without my headphones on, and have to walk head down looking at the pavement to go from oasis to oasis (home/office/gym/pub) so I can pretend I am in the capital of England.

I actually intended to sign off from this thread on a positive though.

Apart from the elements I can't refer to, in case my online observational comments are interpreted as 'hate', this city does have a lot of positives, primarily the European cuties, who albeit a tiny minority, are here and are welcome))

RE: R.I.P. London
I have been twice to London , I felt a very weird thing :
1- There are a lot of green spaces
2- Justice and law seem to work
3- There are only foreigners , I haven't even seen english people , it is a very weird cosmopolitan feeling
4- The paki/nigerian equivalent to our French moroccans/congolese are as despicable as ours but have developed this kind of english strout and accent which is ridiculous

RE: R.I.P. London
For those who grew up/spent most of their lives in London, do you think London gave you a shitty mentality? I feel so relieved to not be living there for most of the year and it made me realise that everyone there acquires one of these cold-hearted mentalities. I think that there are positives to the London mindset like the hunger, hustle and drive but living in London makes the average person faker, colder and brainwashed.

I am not speaking for everyone but ill give an example, most of my friends who live in London view everything as transactional, they cannot do anything for fun but rather operate like robots, although I am not speaking for all people. Has anyone else noticed this is the case?

RE: R.I.P. London
How many have seen this video?





This was back when the police had significantly more officers and other units but I wonder what would happen nowadays or in the future if police go understaffed and under funded.

They make it quite clear they couldn't do anything to the rioters except hold the line and that was a job in itself. Makes it a good reminder how things can quickly turn to shit if enough people are willing to go on the streets and riot, loot and attack.

Is it really that bad in London? This thread makes it sound like a 3rd world shit hole with uber rich (both local and international) occupying the rich areas (Mayfair, etc)

I was last there in 2010...how much has it changed since then?

Loads has changed since then, I go back for business and the pressure on public services and infrastructure is amazing. The amount of people from other countries is amazing. It’s got to the point where I’m advising my family to get out whilst they can

RE: R.I.P. London
I just arrived in London today, just after dumping my bags in the hotel I go around the corner to the local Tesco Express and I got some black fella begging me the length of the street for money for the Underground. Months spent in New York this never happened. I actually had a dazed moment when I looked down Westminster and saw many non white faces of all kinds, the few white ones just look run down....worn. I dare say..pissed. Like they know something is up but have buried it so far they can't articulate what. it's given them psychosis. it feels so weird this time.

The pressure on the system is even more insane than it was 2 years ago.

I couldn't help but just think of that Train in Poland Vs UK. At what point does the term England become a historical phrase or designation simply the name of a geographical dust and dirt mound rising above the ocean?

I've been in London until 2017. It is not going into the right direction, but it's definitely not a "3rd world shit hole". Today, compared to any major Brazilian city (actual shit-holes), London still feels like heaven in terms of safety, public transport, green spaces, job opportunities etc... . For me, when it comes to London, the biggest turn off is the terrible English weather and the lack of sunlight. But, again, I am pessimistic when it comes to the future of the city.

Oh dont worry, Brazil takes the shithole cake over London in every regard but thats because its Brazil and this is London.

Whilst we dont have people being turned into shish kebabs by machete wielding scum there are many areas outside of central London you wouldn't want to be at any time of the day.

Turning what could be a great city and making it into a large area of haves and have nots, whilst enacting PC culture and policing is not the way to do things.

I noticed that when i was at university several years back. I studied in Manchester but had a lot of friends at Newcastle uni, as it was closest to my hometown. Student areas tend to be on the boarder of ghettos, especially in Manchester with the whole Mosside/Rusholme/Fallowfield area. A real dump where students were getting mugged weekly by the local 'roadmen'. Walking through Rusholme late at night for girls was a real no no as well; heard a lot of stories about some real scary harassment from the Pakistani and Indian folk who inhabit the 'curry mile' etc.

A lot of Newcastle students lived in Jesmond with cheap rents and just a real nice city neighbourhood. Good transport with the metro, gentrified boutique stores and waitrose etc. As you say the run down areas of the city just look more dilapidated than anything, with no real 'threat' from the locals.

It's so funny for me reading your thoughts on the whiteness of Newcastle. I live thereabouts in a rural area and literally never see anyone non-white unless I go into Newcastle! For me, Newcastle is quite cosmopolitan! I'm beginning to think there might only be Leonard on here who can out 'country-bumpkin' me!

Just last week one of the lads at work told me how he was in Newcastle over the weekend and 'didn't see a white face!'. Of course he was exaggerating for effect, but he was adamant that whenever he goes to 'The Toon' the diversity gets amped up compared to each previous visit.

I'm planning a visit to London in the New Year (only right, since I've been called out for slagging the place off on here without having visited!). If Newcastle gives me a shock, London's gonna give me a case of the vapours!

This is a brief life, but in its brevity it offers us some splendid moments, some meaningful adventures.
