Gold iPads and champagne: Why London is a 'crap town'

Danger, gold iPad cases, money wasted on champagne and an abundance of steakhouses have been cited as reasons why London tops a list of the worst places to live in the UK.

Partly it's the ridiculous bad taste of places like Mayfair (I saw a shop selling gold iPad cases).

Partly it's the glaring inequality - the fact that five minutes walk away from the City, where people are blowing thousands of pounds on single bottles of Dom PĂ©rignon there are people who have to go to food banks to eat...

Partly, it's the danger. But mainly, it's those Aberdeen Angus Steakhouses.
