Dear UK goons,

I too am an UK goon. Is this the right thread to introduce myself or is there some other thing I have to do first?

welcome friend, please introduce yourself to the thread

Well, hello! I am an immigrant in London currently studying at uni, like pretty much every other immigrant here.

I'd like to say more, that's really all there is to it. Maybe something worth mentioning is that I have completely embraced cask and have no problem with warm beer anymore.

Thank you! I've seen people in this thread have really cool avs too.

I am actually a really good driver.

It's the lack of laws and regard of mine and others safety that got the party started, though

Just read an article about the plan for some KFCs and McDs to not serve under-18s to curb staff abuse. Great, now instead of being stopped by teenagers who want me to buy them fags, it'll be:

"Scuse me mate. If I give you a tenna can you go into KFC to grab me and my mates some popcorn chicken."

Staff abuse? What the gently caress?

I also love too when some kid that looks 14 wants me to buy him fags because he "forgot his id". Look, if you aren't gonna pay me for my trouble then you aren't getting anything

i am in london with my better half next week and have a pretty tight plan for our stay - lots of tourist stuff n poo poo, but does anyone have any recommendations that aren't so well known or that they just like

Madame Tussaude's is hell on earth. But nearby is the Golden Phoenix: best goddamn Chinese I've had in my life

Go to the Welcom Collevtion for a museum that combines science+art in amazing ways. If you are lucky they might still have the exhibit on sound. Somewhat related idea: Victoria and Albert Museum

In Chinatown is the experimental cocktail club. Get your drink on in style

Go to Bricklane if you wanna take a nice walk and don't mind a bunch of assholes trying to get yo to go to their restaurants. But it's nice and you can go to the Rough Trade nearby and/or Cafe 1001 for a drink or the nearby street food for, well, food

That's just stupid at this point. If you are gonna do something wrong, at least put in the effort of doing it wrong right.

v ungood imo

someone tried smashing the side window on my sisters car but was such a mouthbreather they couldnt do it so settled with scratching it instead

Case in point: what the gently caress does anyone accomplish by scratching somebody's car? I know he wasn't able to break the window but at least take it for a joyride or something.

...some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn

It's just the lack of commitment what bothers me.

If they really wanted to watch the world burn they would have slashed the tyres or something. That is some teen tier scrub bullshit right there

Is the help to buy isa good? Looking at renting with my girlfriend at the moment, but was wondering if it's worth it/will be protected in the next few years

With my very limited understanding of the world, and given that I'm really new to this kinda things, the answer would be yes.

It's better than regular ISA and good for budgeting a cool two hundo each month for savings, it's tax free with a good interest rate and if you choose to buy a home eventually the government gives you some free money to go along with it.

Only bad thing is that you can only put 200 a month regardless of if you draw from it or not; however you could conceivably open multiple ISAs and budget your savings around them to make he most out of your ISA allowance (so if you intend to save 400 or more than 200 but less than any number larger than 400 a month you should open two ISAs). Bonus points if for each ISA you open you have 1200 for each to make the most out of them with each month.

Overall10/10 would ISA again.
