I tend to avoid the Daily Mail because they lie a lot.
Overall though I’m lead to believe the people in Hyde Park didn’t have a great time because it was pouring it down all day and there was a huge police presence (because why wouldn’t there be around an organised celebration of an illegal substance?). Not as many people turned up as expected because of this. People who celebrated it in other parts of the country supposedly had a better time though with less rain and not that many police on duty.

everyone’s like “hA HA EASTER IS ON 4/20 LOL BLAZE IT PRAISE IT”

and then in Britain we’re just like “it’s 20/4 don’t blaze anything except the toaster for some hot cross buns and the kettle for an accompanying cup of tea”

I hope this is readable (if it’s not I’ll reupload). I got handed this by a policeman outside of a tube station the other week and I think it’s an important bit of information that should be shared, especially as this blog reaches a lot of people in London who will use public transport

I’m Alex, I’m from Chesterfield which is in the Midlands in England. This is my go at the accent challenge, coz I’m cool and I had nothing better to do. Fun fact: this took 4 tries and an audio conversion because my laptop is almost as dumb as I am. The audio may be awful so I’m sorry for that
