NOT A CITY
London has been called the largest city in this article in the first line, but it is not a city. It is thought of by some but that doesn't make it true. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:C7F:B00D:8B00:7073:3B00:E29:D7C2 (talk) 14:42, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
"Air Quality" subsection under "Geography"
I respectfully propose that a subsection of "Geography" be added and called "Air Quality." Under this subsection, please include the following:
"According to the 2016 World Health Organization Global Urban Ambient Air Pollution Database, the annual average PM2.5 concentration in 2016 was 12 micrograms per cubic metre, which is 2 micrograms above the recommended limit of the WHO Air Quality Guidelines for the annual mean PM2.5. Kings College London conducts daily research on the air quality of the city and has reported that air pollution kills roughly 9,500 people in London on average every year.User: Arod59881 21:50, 3 December 2018
Sister cities - where did they go?
I recall an earlier version of this article listed London's sister cities around the world. That list doesn't seem to be here any more, nor does the phrase "sister city" appear even once. What gives? Shouldn't that list be reinstated? --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 09:34, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
- How long ago? Looking back in 2017 I don't see it, although it might have been there briefly. In 2017 and earlier versions there was a link to List of twin towns and sister cities in the United Kingdom § London in the "see also" section. It can now be found at List of twin towns and sister cities in England. — 09:56, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
Sunshine hours look off
Per MOS:PRON, I don't think a pronunciation guide is necessary. All (or nearly all) English speakers know how to pronounce the word London.

- I checked the page, but I added it for multiple reasons. Not only is it not intuitive, it's also linked to the history. They're advised against if they're being only being added as a pronunciation guide. GliderMaven (talk) 18:46, 1 February 2021 (UTC) What?? Roger 8 Roger (talk) 18:51, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
