    I know I asked this once before, but it was a while back. And I have a reason for asking.

    So if you're a Londoner, or can get into London relatively quickly and easily should you so choose -- wave your hands/flippers in the air and let me see.

    Hmm... define 'London'.

    Because what constuitutes (or otherwise) 'London' varies depending on who you ask.

    As it happens, my working life has been spent in London, though I commute in. Oh... and Mum was a proper Cockney. So I do kinda regard myself as 'a Londoner'. Innit.

    Just about.

    My house overlooks fields and trees, but we have a tube station. They invented 'Zone 9' just for us.

    Can't really get in easily on a weekday evening, but can do weekends.

    yeah, about 40 minutes by train (a generous estimate tho, considering Great Western trains).

    Can be in central London in an hour, given half a day's notice.

    I guess I can consider myself a Londoner now. It's funny that we (no, it's they from now on) have a saying that goes something like 'Moscow is not made of rubber', as in 'go away, you can't stick any more people in here'. Well at least now I know a city that IS made of rubber (KX-SP at 8AM).

    Yep. Live it. Love it.

    New Cross [yes, those scallywags that attacked the Freakangels - hohoh, what jaunts] is my living, working, playing area but I study in central.

    I'm in Walthamstow; can be in Central London in about 20-30 mins depending on how the Tube is behaving.

    live near old st, work in the city (NOT A BANKER!) pretty close to whitechapel itself.

    I'm from manchester originally, but i've been here for all of my adult life, it would take something pretty major for me to move away now. London is babylon, in the new testament sense, ie. rome, and its the most beautiful filthy grimey inspiring decadent city i've ever had the good luck to be a part of
