He/she seems like a hateful and neurotic person period, and her comments just reinforce negative stereotypes.

I voted for London, a far better city. I spent considerable time there a few years back while working on a multi billion dollar Arbitration. LA used to be great but now is just a sad armpit.

I chose LA based on weather, alone. The rich will live extremely well in either of those cities, but if I was rich I'd choose LA for the reason listed.

As one who is not rich, I have enjoyed my time in London more than in Los Angeles, for what that is worth.

Two entirely different lifestyles. If we're talking long term, I prefer London. Short term? Los Angeles without a doubt.

I would choose Salerno , beautiful region and great weather. With a private jet i could go to London or Paris for a big city feel. NYC too.

Probably London if obscenely wealthy (25-50M+ net worth). I can buy myself a villa in Malta or Marbella, or travel to the Caribbean in the winter months. The wealth would afford me the highest tier of luxury goods, experiences and dining in London over what is offered in LA. I think it's just a higher "tier" of a city for the upper crust and jetset that can be fairly mobile year round.

LA I would choose if I was very well off (5-10M+ net worth) if I generally will be staying put on site for most of the year.

For climate, SoCal. For overall amenities and QOL? Definitely London.
