45 Things You’ll Never Hear A Londoner Say

Maybe you’re getting bored of us making jokes about how grumpy and tired of the city’s bullshit Londoners are and perhaps it’s time we stopped. But unfortunately for you, lovely SL reader, we aren’t going to. So we’ve compiled a list of things you will never hear a Londoner say…

1. I love how peaceful Hyde Park is.
2. I can always get a seat at my favourite pub.
3. I love experiencing the wide variety of restaurants and pop up food vendors the city has to offer.
4. I never eat at Nandos.
5. Or Pizza Express.
6. London does really needs some more McDonalds though, I can barely find one nowadays.
7. Wait one second mate, just need to pop into M&M world.
8. Shall we just take a short cut through Leicester Square?
