When did the rent in London get SO expensive for rancid hell holes? Rancid hell holes used to be much more affordable.

3. If you already have a job, getting to it isn't as quick and easy as you thought it would be.

9. Much like driving, lessons and a license should be required for walking anywhere in London.

10. Walking slower than 15mph is comparable to serious crime.

12. There is a McDonald's on every street corner.


14. Oxford and Piccadilly aptly have 'Circus' attached to their names.
