WHAT ANNOYS me about this moaning, given that I don’t like the city myself and would never live there again? I think it’s the fact that these individuals are themselves all well-off enough to live and own property there but feel some sort of guilt about those who can’t or who find it difficult to get by. If you can’t afford it or just feel the place is getting on top of you, say so; I can understand that. Just don’t give us all this sensitive, liberal stuff about how much you care about the downtrodden.
