    Lol exactly. These non Londoners have a lot to learn. I hope London becomes independent in future. The rest of the U.K. Is irrelevant to us Londoners
    Sure, good luck finding another bunch of suckers to finance vanity projects in and around your city. And, of course, it would be pretty sweet if Londoners lost the ability to move to more affordable areas, wouldn't it?

    I highly doubt it. Feel free to take some snaps of ladyfolk out and about around Beirut, when you get the chance, to educate those of us who’ve never been, if you feel it will be enlightening :yy:

    Tolerance without condition renders a civilisation not just inferior but, ultimately, doomed. The West is going to implode if it doesn’t wake up and acknowledge the need for pragmatism in pluralism

    What about oriental e.g. Japanese culture? More conformist, and arguably orderly/efficient, and less perversely individualistic :curious:

    Sorry, yes, have amended (South East European and Semitic)

    You’re British, there’s no doubt about that, but English is something a bit different (intimately linked with heritage)

    Kind of, you’d have to have some English in you :mmm:

    You feel primary/a stronger sense of loyalty to other peoples

    You’d get that more so in Italy, trust me

    In most respects you can, and should. When it comes to Englishness you'll never be seen as 'the same' as a native by everyone but that’s the same the world over and it’s swings and roundabouts as we also acknowledge your more than compensatory exotic charm

    Absolutely not, was just agreeing with you but adding a caveat in relation to exemplar ideologies that I could not live with

    Yup, plus other socioeconomic problems I’ve flagged in the past associated with Muslim settlement

    It’s the only way to bring peace the way things stand presently. The Kurds will have to have their own autonomous region or else fight for and win independence (the [disgraceful] Turkish establishment are presently moving to stop this from happening)

    When’s that then, exactly?..:curious:

    Don’t see why, when you don’t have to compete in the region and will likely be living in a very peaceful place before long (inshallah)

    Good to know :emog:
    Full English,yes please :mmm:

    Not really. I'm still loyal to the UK

    My exotic charm eh. It's sucks that you can live here for so many years and never even be considered as on of the natives of the land. But just in general I always feel like a foreigner living in London even tho I was born and raised here

    Aye,my dad was a prime example.

    Could you live with my ideologies?

    The Kurds should just be given their own region(I've actually been verbally abused for saying this)

    I'll surprise thee baby :sexface:

    Just thinking of some extreme sexist getting angry about me displaying my body,inshallah tho,I hope so. I like that my arabness is rubbing off on you habibti

    Good to know indeed,why wouldn't it be :curious:

    London is a superior city that no other U.K. City can come close to. People especially those from other uk cities get so excited when they say they're visiting London like its a holiday for them loooool

    I don't understand... I know it's a cultural thing (I'm sorry if this comes across offensive), but why are there circumcision parties? I'm not against circumcision, since many men do it out of choice; I'm against the circumcision of infants, since they cannot consent.

    And how do you think it got to this stage?

    Can we please never talk about genital mutilation as a 'party', like, ever again? :facepalm:

    Also, that explains why they're hostile to the idea of an independent Kurdish state. They just don't want to give up territory to this state, since a part of Turkey is historically a part of Greater Kurdistan.

    Drowzee, my child, one should never worry about offending people's cultural sensibilities when one of these is genital mutilation.
