Happy new year, everyone. A short post to get started.
It's a common saying that "all of London's drinking water has passed through seven other Londoners", because of the filtration system. Unlike most London sayings, this one is true. Those seven Londoners are Gary Spelman of Dollis Hill, Mark Phipps of Bow, Tom Zbigniew of Tottenham, Ethel Merman (no relation) of Charlton, Kenneth Frogmore of Borough, Connie Openshaw of Clapton and Vince "The Pincer" Magruder of Haggerston.
