i worked and stayed in london for a while, i was lucky and stayed rent free in sw4 which is well nice. however the cost of living is ridiculous and basically imho if your worrying at all about cash when your there forget it. traffic is a feckin joke, noise and polloution is ridiculous, water is filthy, more or less everyone is out to get as much as they can at anyone elses expense, people are down right rude especially if your a scot, crime is rife EVERYWHERE, cocaine is shite, clubs are full of pretentious tossers and birds that love themselves, IMMIGRATION, no matter how slowly and clearly you speak middle class londoners still pretend to find you difficult to understand, they all ask if you have got a kilt and do you eat haggis?, they ask about your clan at dinner parties, police are even more corrupt down there (hard to believe i know), pubs shut at ridiculous times, buskers, the underground, yankee tourists with union jack flags, the bloody m25, an outrageous obsession with tea and the queen mum hence those commerative tea towels, chas and dave, constantly hearing the phrase "your avin a laugh intcha?", plastic gangsters that say "understand" at the end of each sentence, gay pride marches, commerative plates, etc etc.

apart from that its just great mate.

i wondered when this would descend into naff boasting about house prices :blah:
**** it, lets all just post our annual salary, how much our house is worth and what car we drive.
then post pics of our rolexes.......

i have a bee in my bonnet because this thread is becoming very vulgar and naff.
no hes right im from scotland so i shouldnt be allowed to debate in this thread, ill bow out.
mosi mate why is it that so many of your posts are always related to possesions and wealth not all but a fair few. now before you say im jealous im not as i do very well myself and was very fortunate to be born into a comfortable lifestyle, its just all this banter about house prices is naff end of story imo

Where the hell have I mentioned ANYTHING that I possess in this thread

:rolleyes: :rolleyes:
not directly this thread mate, but what about the one a wee while ago about your mate that had just bought a ferrari or similar and what you should by next to compete with him??
naff as **** matey
mosi i have just read your post suggesting i like it up the ass, wtf is that about mate?
dont start the saddo keyboard hero shite ffs.
trake it to pm, are you honestly that bothered mate. i do not have that big a problem with you mosi it was a simple observation thats all. sorry if you dont like my opinion but there you go.
mmm you will have to show me that particular thread mosi, now i know i must be a closet **** cos im a bodybuilder but ive just never met my type, perhaps your him?
jeez mosi, your sensitive are you not. calm down ffs. sorry to have questioned you. at the end of the day im not the one banding about pointless insults from behind a keyboard for little or no reason other than you dont like what someones opinion on a few of your threads have been.
chill man chill.
who says i think im somthin special cos im a bodybuilder? seriously mosi what are you aiming at? are you just throwing cheap jibes to try and start a slagging match or what?
i simply find people prattling on about house prices in their area pretty sad and naff, especially when they make it obvious they are staying in the best areas of said towns.
who says im wound up? im not bothered my arse about it matey, likie i said your miles away behind a keyboard.
i made a point of announcing it as being a bodybuilder/superhero im used to peoples first insult being directed at my sexuality.
read between the lines with that one....
right in all serious lets stop this pish before it gets even more pointless ive made my point and you have made yours.
bet you your rolex is a naff gold one, mines tastefull stainless steel. lol
