@Flibmeister - That`s not down to public transport, it`s just Essex.

@Loinheart - You hear many things in London, but sadly very few of them are in Enlish. Try Urdu, Turkish, Arabic, Chinese, Polish etc etc.

I don`t know about dangerous as much as friendlier than one might expect.

You`ll miss your bus learning/teaching culture through the exchange of anecdotes, if that`s danger.

i love london best city in the world!! it is true though, it`s because unless there`s a point to the conversation you think people must have an ulterior motive! i`m always polite though i smile and wave at my neighbours and if people talk to me i always reply! unless they`re clearly twats..

also:

This is more likely what you would hear...
"Get ya fackin` hands up ya twat before I lamp ya one, you`re nicked sunshine"

i`ve never heard anything like that in my life. the tube is relatively safe. you get the usual loud drunk people (i`m often one of them) but i`ve never seen a fight or anything, there`s nowhere to run!

that usually happens on the busses..

I wouldn`t want to live anywhere else. Yes there are a lot of foreign languages but most of them can speak English as well. I find a lot more narrow-mindedness outside of London and don`t feel as comfortable even though I`m white. I know some people who have decided to vote BNP and these people are the ones who don`t interact well with others, just like this sign is suggesting.

If I heard some Brit tell me that, I would bust out laughing. Even if it meant an ass-kicking. XD

Easy done!

Los Angeles:
"ON THE F***ING GROUND MOTHERF***ER ON THE GROUND OR I PUT A FU**ING CAP IN YOUR FU**ING HEAD AND IF I MISS NONE OF THESE OTHER 10 OFFICERS WITH GUNS WILL, YOU`RE UNDER ARREST FOR FELONY JAYWALKING YOU FU**ING MOVE AND IT`LL BE THE LAST THING YOU DO YOU MOTHER..."

London:
"Please excuse the show of force necessitated by my having to remove my truncheon from its case, sir. I must advise you that I am under the impression that you may have breached certain sections of the law pursuant to crossing the road, and advise you that you will be taken to the Station where the Station Commander may, upon review of my report of the incident, advise the Public Prosecutor to take further action against you in this matter, including possible placing of charges against you."

Londoners are some of the most arrogant stuck-up people in the whole of Europe. You breathe near one on a train and you get the death-stare. It`s no wonder people stereotype us all.

That said, the North isn`t exactly what you would call pleasant... Midlands for the win!

`London is like that, we`re much nicer "up north"`

If by nicer you mean louder, more likely to shout stuff in the street based on peoples appearences and use racial terms to address strangers then yep much nicer "up north", the further up you go the worse it gets Sheffield, manchester everyone`s just a bit louder, leeds people are just downright racist, Leeds vs Crewe alexadria was a educational experience(yes i know football fans are always a little bit more racist but this was rediculous, from kickoff to the end of the game people shouting racist abuse at your own players and me as i had the nerve to goto a game). Then you get all the way up to newcastle and you literally can`t walk down the street without people shouting stuff about you.

I`ll stick to down south, i dont live in london but on my visits there you just get people avoiding eye contact and not helping you with you stuff.

I`ll pick silence over abuse any day, thankyou :)

In Canada we`re making the rough transition from outwardly friendly polite folks, to paranoid loners. You see someone approaching and your eyes dodge from them to the ground, and if they`re white you do a sort of half smile, and if they`re old you give it a good one and maybe a hello.

5Cats - Nah, it says don`t make direct eye contact. But even if we weren`t allowed to look at each other at all.

JAmie76 - That`s pretty much it, yeah.
