London! Birthplace of sweets that will put you in a coma, cab drivers with increased grey matter for “the knowledge” and home to politicians who have been accused of nastiness with wildlife in an incident that painfully mirrored an episode of Black Mirror.

My Freddy Krueger costume for this year is basically sorted. I just need to take things a step further and light my face on fire so that it can authentic as can be. Either that, or drip mozarella cheese all over my head until it congeals to form a proper and delicious mask.
