John Cleese: London Is Not An English City Anymore. By Paul Joseph Watson.
The actor said that London was the most cosmopolitan city on earth but that it “doesn’t feel English”.
“I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King’s Road and say, “Where are all the English people?”
“I mean, I love having different cultures around. But when the parent culture kind of dissipates, you’re left thinking, “Well, what’s going on?”‘ said Cleese.
The Monty Python star’s comments are just a reflection of reality. In London, white British people are a minority and have been for some years.
Over 41% of London’s population is foreign born. London also has the second highest foreign-born population of any city in the world.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan:
These comments make John Cleese sound like he’s in character as Basil Fawlty. Londoners know that our diversity is our greatest strength. We are proudly the English capital, a European city and a global hub.
1960s London was not diverse so therefore it could NOT have had any interesting pop culture.
The Rolling Stones, Carnaby Street fashion, Peter O’Toole and Richard Harris, Led Zeppelin, Tom Stoppard, The Who, Michael Caine, The Kinks, and Monty Python?
But now London has knife/acid attacks! …
Okay, Cleese, sure, London used to have this back in your day:
But London now has this!
Commentary on the new London. Ouch.
There are still pockets of England outside of the major cities …
London is the canary in the Western coal mine.
