Most people who visited London enjoyed their time very much, calling this city "shithole" is silly. I can't take this stuff too seriously these days, Loz.
Visiting London is fine - it's once you've lived there that you realise what a shithole it is.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Scum making the headlines of the back of supporting a President that they view as in tune with their racist agenda. I find this utterly sickening.

Can honestly say that I don't know anyone who has lived in London and sees it as a 'shithole'. If anything, they always emphasis that London is a collection of villages, each with it's own identity, that come under the greater title of London.

So blatantly EDL supporters, you can see it in the way they look and how they act. I guess they think if the left can get away with this sort of protest then so can they. The thing is fascist agendas shouldn't be given any sort of airing, yet they will claim its their right to free speech to preach hatred and then start comparing themselves to left wing protesters.

So far it's been mostly the lefties who do all the protesting/rioting, looks like the right-wings are getting in on some of the action...oh, and the hashtag stuff too of course!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Those protesters are twats. But they're only doing what 'progressive' protesters have been doing to widespread applause for as long as I can remember.

I've been saying all along, Trump is a natural progression from President Mic-drop, and the same goes with this sort of nonsense.

I'm jealous. How can the Swiss get the same message accross to Trump?
It's alright, he can use any silly excuse he likes, we let him keep his face if he keeps off our grounds.

Since when has inquiring after member's info that can identify them, been a good netiquette?! People are free to put out info on themselves as they wish, they are grown ups and it is their own risk. But being nosey or personal to others and possibly exposing them is a no-no.

Just deal with the fact, folks, that there are members with different opinions. Thank god that EF has not become an echo chamber and that we do allow a decent and quite civil debate with various views.

Because I realized that he asked when I lived in London, not where.

I was replying directly to him posting the information himself, including how many months he lived in Harrow. Whilst I was writing my post, he must have amended his, hence why I edited mine. I didn't expose anything that he didn't write himself in the post above mine.

I believe you may owe me an apology.

No, it doesn't, but I am intrigued as to why someone would describe it as a shithole.

I've never lived there, and have never wanted to. I know the city pretty well from work and visits, but the closest I ever lived to it is a tiny little village of less than 1,000 people between Heathrow and Datchet. The sole reason that I wouldn't want to live in London is that I prefer living in towns. To me, cities are where I go to work and play. OH lived in Deptford for a few years in a shared house full of Saffas and Aussies, so a lot of their nights out were in Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith, etc...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Perhaps time to go back to the initial question posed by Phil_MCR on 09.11.16- there might have been some doubt then.

I don't think there is any doubt at all now.

As for comparing Trump with Obama, again, and again - I have no words.

Shepard's Bush has one of the best Dim Sum restaurants I have ever eaten in . If you are there check out ShiKuMen Its right next door to where the terrible Antipodean pub the Walkabout used to reside. Sorry wrong thread...

No doubt that he is? That he is not?
LOL, have you followed the thread? The regulars on here have not yet come to a consensus.
