The vibrant capital city we call London

I read with interest Iain Murray’s view that London is full of binge drinking muggers with every pub full of ape-like football hooligans.

It’s really not fair to stereotype London in this way, just as it’s not really fair to stereotype Iain as a cynical costermonger who believes everything he reads in the Daily Mail.

Iain really should get out more and recognise that London is friendly, vibrant, brimming with fine architecture and great entertainment. Although the capital does have its problems, like any other large city, most visitors would not recognise Iain’s negative view of London.
