London is in the UK, so for better or for worse, has socialised healthcare meaning, health care is paid for already at the point of access (for Brits and non Brits alike). Being in London, London is a part of the UK vaccination against Covid programme which has gone so well, the EU is thinking about holding supplies. London is where all your favourite UK music is recorded and released, and it's where to find high end items in abundance only found in a selection of cities around the world (Madrid, Hong Kong, New York City and Los Angeles are the others, along side London). London has 5 international airports and is more forward thinking and prosperous than the rest of Europe with out rights of minorities and financial hub. Businesses are open until much later than other places in England. Of course, life isn't perfect in London; we still have problems with the police and problems with gangs as the police seem to think they're above prosecution so a a rule of thumb should be challeneged if they step out of line lest London becomes a police state. London has history and culture, full of museums if you're in to that sort of thing. It was @Montegriffo who openly admitted living in Suffolk in the Mayor of London 2021 thread who said he didn't care about London, so rather than say how good it is to live in the United Kingdom, I'm focusing on the good stuff, which is found in London. Soho has featured in a lot of popular music it's almost impossible to escape it; even a band from Manchester (this English city up North) has London's Soho on their album cover. Liverpool band The Beatles recorded at Abbey Road in St. John's Wood and even used the street as an album cover. When Suffolk stops being all UKIP/BNP Skinhead inclined and opens up an international airport or becomes a destination rather than a stop, then I'd be up for listening @Montegriffo but right now, to someone from London, England looks slower, duller and the gene pool is something to be avoided lest your offspring suffer the consequences of inbreeding. But back to London, leading the country; TFL is our transportation network which includes a metro called The London Underground, a monorail called the DLR (Dockland Light Rail), and a bunch of busses that are red in London. Seeing a bus that was painted another colour in another town or city in England; is a reminder that London is where it's at; also, TFL uses an electronic payment system and is cashless; I took a bus in Sussex in 2018 for a month working down there; needed Cash and one trip cost £3.50; which is far more than in London. A few reasons why it's better to live in London than say, an English city, because London is a world city full of all the things you'd expect to find in one (like late night shopping a good place to get food at 5 am) or better than other European cities because of our rights and our freedoms and because of our vaccination roll out.
