Is London the same?

Now, I know a few of you will think I am talking rubbish (as I often do indeed) but this time my dear reader I am not! (so he says).
A looooooooooooooooooooooooong journey back from Stansted airport, after a delayed flight, revealed a London I don't ever remember seeing.
As the bus (and I shall not mention the company as they are not the Elite... and a person like me should never travel so 'low down') was approaching Westminster (I could tell it was, by the big clock... forgot the name ...mmm... oh yeah! the Big Ben) I saw 'trashed' people on the streets, trash (rubbish) and general filth I have not encountered before in central London...
The only answer was the following question: 'Is London at 2 am not so pretty when you are sober?'.
It could very well be that I was extremely tired by the long journey (my journey began at 8.30pm driving to the airport) but I have a feeling it also has to do with a great 'pair of goggles' we get given with the booze!
So tell me... Is it the same London the one we see after leaving the club/bar?
From my experience of last night/this morning, it isn't!
Oh and I think the number of foxes estimated to be walking around London's streets is 'well underestimated'! I thought they were the new gangsters!
