London? I'm from London, and the majority of Londoners are definitely *not* 
high-class. Quite the opposite. Its just that the people that *work* in 
London are more likely to be. And then only if they work in offices. The 
pizza boys, and the bagel boys (in the few places that sell bagels - not like 
the US) are definitely what you consider as coarse.
