M@ is probably the most London-obsessed person in the world, reaching parts of the capital others canâ€™t reach, while mixing up slogans from beer commercials. In the cause of exploring London, he hasÂ waded along the buried River Fleet,Â spent the night in a haunted plague pit, caught a lung infection byÂ climbing Sohoâ€™s tallest steepleÂ and walked along the tracksÂ beneath Leicester Square at 2am. M@ has lived in Blackheath, Borough, Greenwich, Weybridge, West Hampstead, Fortune Green and Chalk Farm. Thanks to the capitalâ€™s obscene property prices, heâ€™s since gone into exile in what he optimistically refers to as â€śThe Future London Borough of Elstree and Borehamwoodâ€ť. Itâ€™s just a bit west of Barnet, since you ask.
