Would it be possible for one of my British or Brit-literate readers to define the term "luvviedom"? Examples of usage:
1. 1. "Branagh, the boy who rose from Belfast Billydom to London Luvviedom, has neglected Hamlet's advice to the players."
2. "For the grand central of London luvviedom, The Ivy is surprisingly unpretentious."
3. "Despite the imperial tradition of intimidation and of systems of sycophancy that even London luvviedom would eye enviously, Zhao introduced the concept of self-effacement to Chinese politics, daring to commit the ultimate act of institutional anarchy — joking at his own expense in public."
