And Those Are Just Our Good Qualities

And Those Are Just Our Good Qualities

While a new guide from travel publishers Lonely Planet notes that London "has a buzz unlike any other European city", this may not so much describe our cultural offerings as how pissed we are. In addition to binge drinking, the recently published book adds junk food overdosing, porn addiction and fame obsession to the list of our offences. This edition fails to mention, however, neither Pete, Lily nor even Peaches, so we got bored, ate a Kentucky and wanked a few times instead of bothering to finish reading it.

If you are of a stronger moral fibre than us, more details can be found here.

OK this may be a fair description of Bromley on a Friday night or Romford but Central London?
I don't think so...

I honestly don't see the howling chav 18 year old girls in dresses 5 sizes too small for them throwing up into the gutter, in Camden or the West End (apart from outside the Hippodrome) at 3 in the morning.
What I see is very cool people (yes very very drunk but..)having a good time and having fun whilst trying to cram their arses onto a nightbus with one of those dodgy hotdogs from the street vendors.

We're good people dammit! It's the rest of the scum across the UK that drag us down!

Hmmm... Sounds a lot like America. The difference is Brits aren't ashamed of their vices. I love London.
