London "No Go" Areas

Discussion in 'London and the South East' started by 8den, Jun 4, 2017.

    8den No I'm pretty sure that was 8ball...

    As American right wing nutjobs ramp up the rhetoric on "Muslim Extremist" and how parts of cities like London and Birmingham are no "no go areas". I thought it would be useful to creat a handy list of the "No Go Areas" the parts of London that no Londoner will ever dare set foot in.

    I'll get us started

    1. Leicester Square.

    2 Covent Garden.

    3. Garfunkles.

    4. Oxford Circus on a Saturday.

    5. Westfield at a weekend.

    6. Croydon. (fuck your trams YOU ARE NOT LONDON)

    7. Changing at Bank

    8. Madam Tussauds

    9. Harrods (unless your nan is visiting).

    10. Angus Steakhouses.

    11. Any West End musical based on a film or Andrew Lloyd Webber Property.

    12. Being near to a football stadium the day of a premiership match.

    13. Being on the Jubilee line before a gig or match on at Wembley

    Are you a Londoner?

    Is this a spoof thread?

    WTF. Seriously bad taste.

    I lived in London for 10years. And yes it's a fucking spoof thread. After every terrorist attack, someone like Hopkins wanders onto sky news or fox and starts talking about Birmingham or London having "no go areas" because of Shari'a Law.

    I was in Croydon yesterday. Was very pleasant, and felt as much London as anywhere else in south London.

    I just asked some American idiot on Twitter to name the no go areas and not had a response as yet.

    I'm only taking the piss it's a bit of light fun. Besides didn't we have a epic thread on Croydon "is it london or is not" a while back.

    So not a Londoner and if Katie can be a fucking cunt you can create bad taste threads. Okay then.

    Croydon has been supplanted by Paris as the most interesting part of London's southern periphery.

    Dalston was getting unspeakably hipsterish already when I lived near there in 2008.

    LOL Angus Steakhouses - I've only ever been in one once and that was to demand booze. They wouldn't sell without us ordering food so we fucked off.
    And so true about Leicester Square - I remember walking through once and some continental teens accosted me to ask where all the 'cool' places were, and all I could come up with was 'not here'

    Think you've missed the point.
    It's about no go areas that no 'real' Londoner would set foot in, not areas that people are allegedly scared to visit cos of sharia rule, as many right wing commentators would have us believe.

    Bungle73 I was there, now I'm here

    I quite like Covent Garden as it happens. And I've been on the dangle way and it was fun. I have a soft spot for Leicester Square too, but maybe that's because I'm a cinema fan.

    Oh ffs of course I got the point. Still think the thread is in poor taste today. You'll live.

    I think it's a bit of much needed relief.
    It's not in poor taste at all.

    Were you chuffed, though, that they thought you looked like the expert on "finding the cool places". :)
