There were some very British replies to this devout Catholic’s denunciation of London

And then someone called Huburtus Venator on Twitter joined in. We don’t know a lot about them, but their Twitter bio is informative (sort of).
“With justice he judges and wages war.”, Apocalypse 19:11: Viva Cristo Rey! #Catholic nation-state identitarian
Anyway, this is what they had to say.
London is now a town of sodomy, fellatio, and cunnilingus. Inversion of normality cannot be normalized. Nature trumps perversion. The progressives’ idealized future is what doomed Sodom and Gomorrah. It’s regressive.

And we’re glad they did, only because it prompted some very British – and very satisfying – replies, of which these are our favourites.

I’ve been to London twice and seen none of those three things. Chose the wrong Airbnb clearly.

And, as this person pointed out, it’s not exactly new.
“Acrobats, jesters, smooth-skinned lads, Moors, flatterers, pretty boys, effeminates, pederasts, singing and dancing girls, quacks, belly-dancers, sorceresses, extortioners, night-wanderers, magicians, mimes, beggars, buffoons” –Richard of Devizes on London in 1192.
