    Ok they were young lads and now teenagers.
    You have more municipal facilities outside London (especially here in the Ferry) Standards of state schooling is akin to private schooling.
    When my lads leave the house I don't have to worry if one of them ends up in trouble in quite the same way etc

    I won't bore you any more tho....

    The ďnamĒ is ok mate. Plenty of parks and the river nearby so canít complain. Letís face it, there are some God awful places where people have to live so I count my lucky stars.
    For me itís the whole rat race and keeping up with the Joneís mentality of a lot of people that does my head in.
    My boy goes to a local state school and the competitiveness of most of the dads along with the Lycra gym kit clad mums who sit on their fat @rses all day drinking coffee winds me up.
    When we come back from our frequent trips to Cornwall I can feel my blood pressure starting to rise once we hit Basingstoke.
    Maybe Iím just turning into a grumpy old so and so.

    Honestly can't agree mate. London is incredibly good for transport across the city, far better than any city I have been to.

    Innit mate. And always impeccably groomed. Nails, clobber, hair, bangers and teeth is top drawer on all of them.
    Oh and I'll add chip shops and take aways in London are shite as well.
    Just not a fan whatsoever, aint been uptown in decades. Used to go two or three times a week back in the legends, red cube and sugar reef days.

    Surprised really , usually the people who bang on about how s hit London is now are the people that have left , and are trying to make themselves feel better about deserting the city of their fathers . Me , i`ll still ride my scooter at 5 am in the summer over Waterloo bridge and fall in love with my city again ,each day.
