Twitter account revealing lives of ‘posh London mums’ is comedy gold

Many people who live north of the M25 consider London to be another country, and there’s plenty of evidence to back this up. Londoners earn more than people in the rest of the U.K., and they are more likely to eat organic food, have a degree and live in a teeny-tiny flat that costs more than a five-bedroom detached house in Manchester.

A hilarious Twitter account, Highgate Mums, appears to provide further evidence that Londoners are a unique breed (or, at least, the posh mums of Highgate are*).

The people behind the account claim to pass on “overheard screams of consciousness from the ladies who brunch” plus “the sharpest tweets from our followers on the ground”.

Is it real? Who cares? It’s hilarious.
