The Decline Of LondonAs the natives decay, so does the city it seems, and make no mistake the people are decaying.
It’s often hidden behind heavy makeup, but some don’t even try to hide it, as demonstrated by the delightful woman who joined protests against an edgy art gallery in Dalston last week, declaring “I don’t care what you believe, I believe no Nazis.” I’d say these creeps crawl up from the sewer, but as I alluded to before, the sewer in London is overground. I struggle to imagine what it might have been like before the rot set in, and the same goes for all of the major cities of the UK from Birmingham to Manchester. I can see why every metropolis needs a Lee Kuan Yew to cane the feet of gum-chewers and hang the dealers in the underpass, because the very nature of a city is to incubate within its urban sprawl the worst excesses of society. - Social Matter

On my visit to England I did not see any London until the bus taking us back to Heathrow. It did not look promising.
