Do they yell loudly in French at everyone in a poor attempt to be understood?

Anyone who's watched Arsenal play in the past 10 years could tell you that.

It wouldn't surprise me if London was the second largest city in many European countries.  For instance, probably more Slovenians living in London than any city other than Ljubljana.

Chicago is the second most Polish city in the world.

They are there to beat the crowds when Putin invades the Ukraine, Poland, Germany, and then France.  Run now and avoid the rush

They've certainly surrendered the silverware.

Their overpowering stench is actually a mating mechanism that unfortunately serves to propagate the species.

The borscht belt, however, has more Polock jokes.

There's a place in France where the ladies wear no pants.  But in London they wear no bras.

Toronto is the second-largest Italian city...after Rome.

Well, in the 1974 Charlotte Rampling's case, perhaps, but...

FTA: There are many French people living in London, but does it really have the sixth highest number of any city?

Just like New York is the largest city in Ireland, Italy and Israel.

well, duh, the poperation is like eleventy hunerd.
 
2014-04-02 03:04:54 PM
Wouldn't this logic also make London Pakistan's largest city?

At any rate, the Frenchmen are just in Londres to complain about the bourgeois inhabitants' lack of culture, snub their noses at English cheeses and of course to smoke cigarettes. Nope, no stereotypes here.

How is Atlanta #11 with 48k and San Fran Metro #12 with 228k? ;^)

Eh? The French in London in TFA are from France. (Disclaimer: DNRTFA)

Almost all "Pakistanis" (and Indians and Bangladeshis) in the UK are born in Britain, second or third generation since their grandparents arrived.

PAKISTANI DALEK!

I know, it was sort of a low point AND a high point to Spike Milligan.

It tends to be young French people moving to Britain for jobs while well off old Brits move to France for the cheap houses and land.

As a Canadian, I am not really impressed.  Montreal is second after Paris and a case could be made for it being bigger with all its GMA included.

French cities peter out in size very rapidly. Paris is not much bigger than Montreal (you have to count the GMA to get Paris ahead). Marseille(s) is about the size of Ottawa ... then ... nothing. Small towns, some very lovely, historic, and compact but not big. France was a country of peasants well into the 1930s. They intentionally kept the people on the land to keep the riots and strikes down in Paris.

Toronto has more Italians than Venice, and would thus be third after Rome and Milan. There are more Jamaicans there than in Kingston I expect.

Our Vancouver is bigger than your Vancouver (I'm not saying anyting against your Vancouver, but it is not THE Vancouver). Ottawa-Gatineau has more people than Washington, DC since the merger with 15 or so villages and towns on its border.

New York has more black people than Nairobi let alone Atlanta, and more Puerto Ricans in all likelihood than Puerto Rico itself.

But London does have very large ethnic minorities which you can see on maps of the main surnames in each neighbourhood. White flight is still going strong there as the native born cockneys dodge crime and traffic.

The weird thing is that the Pakistanis, Indians, Chinese, and even West Indians do better in school that the whites do. Heck, even the Poles are better pupils. So much for American stereotypes. If black people can outperform white people in London, there's no reason they shouldn't do it in New York or Chicago. It's just a question of culture, funding, and teaching. Their "blood" is the same. The media and music are more or less the same. Maybe this proves that you need to get guns out of the schools and streets, not that black people are lazy or dumb. Think maybe?

List of French cities by population:

http://about-france.com/tourism/main-towns-cities.htm

Paris bigger than New York? Not really. The city proper is a couple of million. There's a tremendous sprawl of urban but not really Parisian banlieux and satellite cities. If you count those, New York starts in Hartford, Conn. and doesn't stop until mid-Jersey.

Lyons I forgot but Montreal is arguably bigger, so it is second.

Johnson's claim that London would ranks sixth doesn't seem to be close to being right.

It just seems like they have more French people.
