WE ARE LONDON, London talking, London walking.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: From Regent's Park mosque on to Baker Street

Down to the Cross where all the pipe smoke meets

To Somerstown where some things never stop

The Roundhouse, The Marathon Bar in Camden Lock



You can make it your own hell or heaven

Live as you please

Can we make it, if we all live together

As one big family



Down to Chinatown for duck and rice

Along Old Compton St, the boys are nice

On Carnaby you still can get the threads

If you wanna be a mod, a punk, a ted or a suedehead



You can make it your own hell or heaven

Live as you please

Can we make it, if we all live together

As one big family



Na na na na naaaa na na

We are London

Na na na na naaaa na na

London talking



Na na na na naaaa na na

We are London

Na na na na naaaa na na

London walking



In all the nightclubs, strip joints and the bars

From its poorest paid to its highest stars

The poets, plumbers, painters, spreads and sparks

From its inner-city to its furthest parts



You can make it your own hell or heaven

Live as you please

Can we make it, if we all live together

As one big family



Na na na na naaaa na na

We are London

Na na na na naaaa na na

London talking



Na na na na naaaa na na

We are London

NB, to middle England "intelligence" means Boris Johnson not Stephen Hawking, whereas to London intelligence means Stephen Hawking and Jeremy Corbyn and Boris Johnson means Middle England or "Little England" depending on what sort of a day you've had.

Jeremy Corbyn forced England to show its true colours. London is a strong Corbyn shade of Labour, England is a true blue shade of racism.

Not that London is without all sorts of visitors who bring middle England with them, of course. But the real London is Suggs' London. That's my London. That's where I grew up. If you don't know where it is, you've not been to my city yet.

I think that I was wrong to a small degree about the lack of anti-semitism in Britain. In England it may well be the case that jews also face employment discrimination - less, perhaps, than non white people, but discrimination nonetheless. I do not believe that it is likely to be a significant problem in London. This city is clearly very anti-racist and whilst corporations are racist towards non white people and non white London suffers massive race discrimination in employment, I do not believe jews have any significant employment racism to deal with in London. I would not have thought so. I hope I'm not wrong about that. Jewish families would know. Most probably concur with me. Outside London jews face provincial employers and face racism along with others the provincial white racists hate.

So I suspect that there really is anti-semitism in England, whilst in London one doesn't tend to notice any or meet jews who feel they have suffered employment discrimination, whereas the number of non white Londoners who feel that they are treated in a racist way when it comes to being given jobs and opportunities is a mountain, ever growing.

Nonetheless I admit that England certainly does appear to have very serious racism not just in its corporate presence but among the people - and so I suspect that there is a serious anti-semitism problem and an extremely serious anti-non-white problem in England.

London is different. The only source I can say definitely is racist in London is the landscape controlled by corporations and their billionaire owners. The rest of London is usually bloody nice.
