Intro[change source]

I've made quite a few changes. With regards to London having people from other countries- yes, true! But London remains predominantly English. As for the languages, it is misleading to say that 300 languages are spoken. They are not. People in the privacy of their homes, and in company with their fellow immigrants may speak different languages. But only one language is spoken in London, and that is English. If you say that 300 languages are spoken, then it implies that there is a situation like Switzerland, where French, German and Italian are all spoke, or Canada where French and English are spoken.

Ambiguity in infobox[change source]

I think we are going to have to import the En wiki box, and stick to it. Editors put in the City of London, which is a tiny part of the whole. London in general talk means the Greater London area. On En Greater London is the smallest of three areas, the largest being "Metro", which is London plus its commuter belt. We should do the same, then we can just copy their changes.
