    Comment of the week:

    On the hackneyed north/south London debate, halfheartedly revived by CultureLine this week with a spurious survey, Diamond Geezer shoves tongue firmly in cheek:

    I'm looking forward to the statistically vacuous conclusions that this survey is going to churn up.

    "South London is best, our survey says! (Central London excluded)"


    "We've uncovered London's best line for Culture, it's official!"
