Jonn grew up in Romford, spent four years on the Old Kent Road and now lives in Islington, so in the event that Britain ever has a class war is properly screwed. A journalist for over 10 years, he’s written for titles including the Guardian, Financial Times, and Smoke: A London Peculiar. He is also a long time contributor to the New Statesman, and recently joined the magazine to launch CityMetric, a new website looking at the working of cities. He writes for Londonist mainly so that he can pretend that walking around the city staring at bits of it counts as ‘work’.
