Cleese: London Is No Longer English

John Cleese

John Cleese

The gifted actor and writer of Python fame John Cleese was asked what he thought about British culture and the recent London riots during an interview in Australia, in 2011.

He replied: ‘I’m not sure what’s going on in Britain. Or, let me say this – I don’t know what’s going on in London, because London is no longer an English city.

‘That’s how we got the Olympics.

‘They said we were the most cosmopolitan city on Earth. But it doesn’t feel English.

‘I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King’s Road and say, “Where are all the English people?”

    Should be called Londonistan.

  2. Although I love historic England and London, we are choosing not to go there because it's full of muslims.
