Spinning the Belly Fluff of England's Omphalos

I am already heartily sick of Radio 4's new season devoted to that sadly-neglected city, London. Today's offering is a debate chaired by Laurie Taylor to decide whether London is the "Greatest City on Earth." No other British, or even European, city need apply, apparently: the other contenders are New York, Istanbul and Mumbai.

The "London: Why It's So Wonderful and Different and How Everyone Who Lives Here Is More Interesting Than You" season runs for ten more self-congratulatory days. Come back Liverpool, European City of Culture, all is forgiven!
