Londoners not the rudest people in the UK - it's official

Zadie Smith is so wrong

Booker nominee (and loser)
Zadie Smith was bleating on about how much she hated London and how Londoners glaring at each other on the Tube was a sign of England's decline. Well, a survey in Reader's Digest has shown that despite Londoners' reputation for being miserable rude gits, we are not.

Brummies (people from Birmingham) are the rudest in the country apparently and Londoners were the fifth most courteous and polite. So anyone who wants to say we are rude bastards can fook right off. Do you want to argue with that mate? Oh have a look at the BBC's site about this if you want to disagree. Who you looking at?
