This should really help them cut down on the alcohol abuse issues.

Can't wait until the tabloids run the story that the Queen and Prince Philip had a row having to do with Phil's tendency to bogart his joints.

Subby is a moron.

The UK is the greatest place on Earth.  It has beautiful weather - you can go to the beach almost any time of year.  It has amazing mountains - lofty peaks, perpetually snow-capped.  It has friendly, beautiful people, always willing to help and offer a kind word.  There is amazing food in nearly every restaurant, and beautiful pastries in every bakery.  Housing prices are low, and well-paying jobs are plentiful, and taxes are hardly anything at all.  London is clean, reasonably-priced, and filled with wonderful greenery.  You are free to walk the streets without fear of being watched by the government, which is remarkably well-run.  The universities offer shortened, easier degrees because the public school system is just that good.

So you see, there's just nothing to complain about.

Other motions to be debated at the meeting include a call for a "forever" ban on cigarette sales to anyone born after the year 2000

So they're going to legalize weed and ban cigarettes?

I was excited, then I kept reading to where they also want to ban tobacco for people born after 2000. I wonder if it was the same side of the mouth that was admitting that prohibition was an abject policy failure, and then advocating for the same. Derp.

I'm from San Dimas, California, 2688. And I'm telling you it's great here. The air is clean, the water's clean, even the dirt, it's clean. Bowling averages are way up, mini-golf scores are way down. And we have more excellent water slides than any other planet we communicate with. I'm telling you this place is great! But it almost wasn't. You see, 700 years ago, the two great ones, ran into a few problems. So now I have to travel back in time to help them out. If I should fail to keep these two on the correct path, the basis of our society will be in danger. Don't worry, it'll all make sense. I'm a professional.

I agree with pretty much everything you said except one huge one: London is expensive, even relative to other epic cities of the world. That said, it's worth it again and again.

More interested in the link out of FA:

top:
"A total of 13,581 children received medical treatment for drug addiction and cited cannabis as their "main problem drug", which is an increase of nearly 50% in seven years, the latest statistics show."  Oh, noes!!

Bottom:
"The statistics on medical treatment were compiled by Public Health England, which told The Sun: "Stronger cannabis strains may be causing more problems."
(maybe the kids need lessons on dose titration).

"Rolles said the number of people being referred for treatment could be influenced by changes in the youth justice system, adding more than a third of the 13,581 children were referred by the courts.
"This doesn't mean that none of these people needed treatment, although we need to be wary of saying that all referrals involve addiction or dependence," he added."  OK...

No criteria for cannabis addiction, huh?

Ugh. I had a friend from France who did that. I gave him mighty amounts of shiat, even though I smoked cigs at the time. Who wants to hold in tobacco hits? Yuck.

If your fine lookin Brit was a Londoner then I'm not surprised that everyone he sees is miserable underneath, London will do that to almost anyone. Rest of the country can be quite chipper (maybe not the south east though...)
