Has living in London corrupted you?

London Quiz

Capital FM launched one of those "you know you're a Londoner when...", "how much of a Londoner are you?" type quizzes today -

This one's rather titillating (for want of a better word), but includes a few tube related questions to work out just how much of a corrupt Londoner you are:

Have you ever taken a train without a valid ticket?

Have you ever?
  • Given a travelcard to a ticket tout
  • Bought a travelcard from a ticket tout
  • Been a travelcard ticket tout

    Ever been sick:
  • In the back of a cab
  • In your handbag / briefcase
  • In a tube station
  • On a moving tube train

    Ever got the first tube home from a night out?

    Which of these sounds the rudest?
  • Going down the Old Kent Road
  • Hanging out on the New Kings Road
  • Being taken round the M25 to Feltham
  • Heading south of the river after midnight
  • Switching to the Bank Branch of the Northern Line
  • Riding the DLR to Mudchute

    I was 31% corrupt which I think is quite good going considering I've lived in and around London for all of my life, it's not corrupted me that much. Although I've travelled a lot without a valid ticket, I've never bought or sold to a ticket tout. Never got the first tube home. Also never thrown up on a moving tube train or in my handbag or the back of a cab.
