An area of northeast London, UK, situated in Newham, one of the poorest boroughs in the city. It has recently acquired some degree of fame as the location of the main Olympic Stadium for London 2012, leading to it becoming known as the "Olympic Borough". The problem with this is that it has led to the whole area being a perpetually unfinished mess of roadworks and chewing gum, with the glitz and glamour of Westfield and the Stadium separated by a literal wall of shops from the grimy residential areas full of kebab houses, flower shops and knife crime. In short, a complete and utter mess. To be avoided if at all possible - unless you live there, in which case you probably don't have enough money to leave.
Since the Olympic building projects got underway I've found it increasingly difficult to leave my house, since I live in Stratford.

A character in the webcomic Homestuck. He is an indestructible demon who will be summoned at the end of the universe to destroy it; however, he can travel in time, and so attempts to prevent his arrival are futile, because he is already here. This phrase - "he is already here" - is a common catchphrase among fans of the comic (and among friends of fans who actually have no idea what they're talking about).
Lord English made his first appearance in the comic in the end of Act 5 intermission, when he possessed the crippled body of Doc Scratch. Here, he takes the form of a hulking green monster with a peg leg, eyes which look like constantly-changing billiard balls, a long coat embellished with rainbow patterns, and a suspicious resemblance to Dave Strider's puppet companion, Lil Cal. He is responsible for the death, by rainbow AK47, of Andrew Hussie. It's thought that he will kill again. It's also thought that he can only be killed by exploiting glitches in the time stream.
Not to be confused with Lord British, a character in the game series Ultima.
