Indeed, government expenditure per capita is so much lower in the neglected north than down south isn't t... oh.

Ha ha, make sure you get to the shops before 5pm, or they'll be shut, ha ha


And good luck passing someone you're not related to when you walk to the post office for the highlight of your social week!

Anyway, we've all got 4x4s in london, we'll be fine!

if the Thames breaks it's banks in the London area it will be a disaster for everyone where ever you are living. It is the capital city and so needs to function well for ALL of the country to benefit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bah. Everyone knows, if London goes tits up, Government moves to Harrogate... Well, it did in "The Kraken Wakes"...

I'm not sure it would have so much effect day to day if London didn't function - we've got our own powerstations and stuff 'up here', and broadcasting, and an airport or two... And London doesn't even have a branch of Bettys. I suppose the City is important, but we'd just go back to bartering pigs for a week or two...

I suspect the issue would be the subsequent diversion of funds to finance the clean up...:biggrin:

It's probably better if London gets flooded, rather than any other city, as they have more high rise buildings! So at least they'll have somewhere to work even if they can't get home. :biggrin:

Don't worry London, the waters will have dispersed and flooded Marlow, Maidenhead, Windsor etc. long before it gets to you. :biggrin:

London has an excellent drainage system called the Thames! The city will only ever flood from water coming upstream, not down!

I imagine that londoners could collect all the flood water in their discarded skinny moccafrappalatte cups, thus diverting any genuine crisis.

They could then spend some extra time telling us how bladdy great it is to live in such a vibrant, exciting city, whilst simultaneously being unable to afford to participate in any of the vibrancy or excitement due to paying a million pounds for a flat that has less floor space than their mums back bedroom.

Please continue to be smug and self-satisfied about the North - it's absolutely justified!
