Despite living in Mumbai, I'm not a PhD on Riot Studies, but I'm really not sure if ten minutes away is a very safe distance. Well, unless you're a Skull.

People are destroying other people's livelihood, burning buildings, and generally being senseless idiots... and you're most concerned about a couple of extra pence at the end of everyone's tax invoice? Nice prioritizing there.

Well, they have no reason to hit this place, Sabre. There're just... houses over here. Still, I'm probably looking for trouble by doing that.

Yea maybe my priorities aren't in the order most peoples are... But a Drug Dealing Gangster carrying a loaded pistol gets shot by police so the country has the kind of widespread violence, looting, protesting and arson not seen since the Brixton Riots. there are buildings that survived the Blitz that have succumbed to this scum uprising. I'm just sad that I belong to this degenerate Nation.

These protests have long since stopped having anything to do with Duggan being shot, it's just a 'me too' attitude, maybe with a bit of anger about cuts mixed in. Hardly justifies it though. 'degenerate nation' though? No. Spoilt, yes, and to a certain extent repressed. And yet, I have no patience with people who would blame it on 'this generation'.

@C.A.D.: I would personally say that what you're considering doing is ultimately unwise, tempting such a fate, speaking as someone who has fended off hostiles before. However, I will not say what you should or should not do, so if you should journey out there, just please proceed with greatest of caution. Come back to us safely.


We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!

@Lynk: Nah, there was violence before video games, but it was because of heavy metal and dark rock n' roll music.

Never figured out why alot of countries like to make the passenger drive.

As for nightlife, stay the hell away from Spearmint Rhino. Going in there, even for " a laugh" on a friend's Stag night, will not end well. If you're into actual, genuine clubbing (Not a dark room that plays pop music dancing around mutton dressed as Lamb, which most "clubs" tend to be) i'd sugggest looking up the club FWD>>. New Dubstep, dance and D'n'B, guarantees a night of epic proportions.

Atttractions wise, there is the staple Big Ben, London Eye, Madam Tussad's Waxworks etc. Depending on how strong your accent is, you could venture into some of the outlying suburbs of London to see income disparity at its worst. And if that's not enough, there's a new past time of smashing things going around. So join in, shout about how poor you are and tell everyone from your iPhone.
