The solution? Get a job up north instead of crowding London even more. Anywhere north of Watford will do ;) It’s a nightmare actually being from London. Speaking with a London accent, everybody thinks you are common as muck because the others who claim to be from London have posh accents and eat in Pret. Most things London workers do are American things and doing actual London things like eating Pie & Mash or getting tea in a ‘Kaff’ are now novelty. The influx of people has diluted London. I like going up north because it’s refreshing to see locals doing local things still.
