I hate your website and the free publication dross you churn out. I want to see what’s on in London. All of it. Not what you deem I want to see in London with your recycled top ten lists of the mundane and well trodden. Give me what’s on. Since you moved away from being a paid publication you have been woefully inadequate at advising what is on in this great city. You used to make this city better. Those times have gone

In such weather conditions, Grocemania might be quite useful! They deliver groceries from any local store in 30 minutes straight to your door! =D
