You do get to avoid some of that in London cos it is a gleaming cyberpunk capitalist dystopia rather than something dreary and provincial. It's an inorganic alien life form constructing itself in the Thames river basin.The thing with England is I hate the weather, the mentality, the culture, the politics, the media, the architecture, the attitude to football. Everything about it's grim and gives me the same horrible feeling as daytime TV. Just this terrible, dreary, mundane greyness. A country which feels like DFS adverts and Jeremy Kyle.
