    Wonder if you mean this;
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_George_Wharf_Tower

    "A final decision was made by the then Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott in 2005 and the tower was approved, against the decision of the planning inspector and despite warnings from Prescott's own advisers that it “could set a precedent for the indiscriminate scattering of very tall buildings across London”.

    Try again

    Also, in large cities - you think towers are not going to become the new normal due to the population increasing in the area and in general?

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    They should do one with this piece of Bristol street art.

    Where there's muck there's brass.

    No. St. Georges was bad enough, but what's happening in the Nine Elms area /close to the new Sainsbury's supermarket is much, much worse.
    Of course towers are the way forward, but these are really cheap and nasty, jerry-rigged and horrible looking.
    All built under the tosser's watch.
    Or see what's happening around Wembley Stadium - same sort of thing, nasty, horrible and cheaply built.
    Hard Brexit now!

    At least they bring down those nasty helicopter thingys.

    Thank goodness the wharf is not going the same way.

    Why should towers be the way forward? Who wants to live in one? Why not just say that only UK passport holders can buy UK property - and only one each.

    Subjective opinion - please cite evidence for "cheap"

    Please see prior link and quote to 'Prescott' (and nothing was built under Ken? or further back?)

    Feck me, not only a cretin, but a tedious one with it.
    If you think Boris is PM material you need your head examined.

    Awww, ad-hominem when asked for evidence to backup a subjective opinion that was called out - my heart bleeds

    I don't believe many of our PMs have truly been 'PM material' - but perhaps you could list a few qualities you think essential and then, list a few people who hold such qualities that you'd like in said position?

    Still, given your prior responses when asked for evidence, I won't hold my breath
