    Former londoner here. Can I just say this is bollocks. Bikes are literally the quickest way to get round london. They are more maneuverable than cars and quicker considering the traffic jams at rush hour. I used to cycle to school for years there and was fine. Plus the amount of cycle routes on the side of roads are wide and safe enough to use, you just gotta instinctively know where to go and what to do... And cycling trainers out there do tell you how to maneuver through London easily. So this whole interview at the beginning that people don't use bikes cause the roads are dangerous is laughable.

    I was working as a temp in a depot that health-checked, repaired and serviced school buses when the GLC was abolished. One day an auditor from the council arrived. He was amused to discover that there was a chain of these installations across London, collectively employing hundreds of people, of which no-one in a senior, decision-making position was previously aware. The old GLC was labyrinthine.

    In the bible women come from the South of England and men from the North of England. The only men that live in the South are the type of men that sneak on to lifeboats on the titanic when it was women and children first. Like that guy in the film. We are physically stronger in the north and bigger. Due to the higher elevation and colder winters. If a civil war broke out between the north and south...the south would lose. The only thing stopping northerners taking the whole island is the police. Once amthey are gone or society collapses....thank you very much. But then we'll go back up north after taking it. Because the atmosphere is better and the quality of the air is better.

    Fun fact: Sussex, Wessex, Essex, and Middlesex, are all named for points on a compass, South, West, East, and Middle respectively. But why Middle and not North, you ask. Well, Little Timmy, there's no north because no one wants to be called Nosex.

    I've never understood buroughs in london, always thought they were basically just suburbs with their own council. But it's really more like London is a small state of its own, and each burough is its own little city, or electorate.

    It is a difficult one; certainly I would say Manchester. Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and any further north than this is in the 'north', but not sure about Cheshire, places like Prestbury, Alderley Edge and Wilmslow are pretty 'well heeled' - a 'pocket' of the south sort of within the north (or north Midlands?). Then Stoke-On-Trent is further south than Cheshire, but in the north culturally.

    Ohhh! I know this historical origins of this one! The concept of the "North-South divide" goes back to the Anglo Saxon heptarchy. In that seven kingdom system Mercia was considered the most northern kingdom in the "South" (Mercia literally means "border people" ) , which makes the River Humber - being Mercia's northern boundary - the dividing "line." And who said a degree in Anglo Saxon literature was useless?! 😂

    Why are so many Australian place names so hard to pronounce? Because during the war they strategically used aboriginal names (& other non aboriginal names) near their bases with letters that Asians couldn’t easily pronounce so it would be hard for them to communicate or navigate & therefore defeat the potential enemies with the cunning use of words

    Strewth is not used as an exclamation of disappointment, as you did. It is either surprise (at what another says) or confirmation of what you are saying (which is the original, from "God's truth"). And is very rare except in rural areas, and rare even there. But you guys are regularly facetious, so you probably know that. Or perhaps don't care and were just using random words to be amusing.
