A MAN who lives in London is spending the holidays walking around the town he grew up in as if he is king of it.
Joshua Hudson has been lording it over the locals, making endless snarky comments about crap local shops and how everything is ‘dirt cheap’ compared to ‘down South’, which is not particularly true.
He said: “I only visit once a year because of my busy life in London. Where I live. In London. But nothing here ever changes. I mean, would it kill them to get a khao pad bar?
“I like to show people what they could achieve with a bit of hard work and by moving to London. It’s kind of a public service. Some don’t like it, but I point out my trainers and jeans cost more than they earn in a month. It’s sad to see such small minds.
“They keep asking if I’m ‘still down in that London’. ’Which is so quaint. When I tell them I live in a warehouse in Hackney with seven other people for £1800 rent a month, I can tell they’re really impressed.
“Later I’m planning to drone on about Uber not existing here and then try to order an old fashioned in my parents’ local. All while trying to avoid anyone I went to school with in case they bully me.”
Before leaving Hudson will ask his parents to lend him some cash and discover his old neighbours’ very thick son earns four times more as a plasterer than he does as a marketing ‘executive’.
