and another thing, Jan - sadly there really is very little we can do to prevent the sky being nibbled away.
I'm saddder than a sad thing in Sadshire that my wonderful skyline has now lost the Telecom Tower, CentrePoint and Saint Pauls. If the Elizabeth House
project goes ahead, I'll lose the London Eye
and, depending on how high the new apart hotel is at Westminster Bridge, gone will be Big Ben (I just lost the Victoria Tower. At least I can see the sun set over the (hideous) Palestra
. All I hope is, probably in vain, that the new buildings are of outstanding quality and, dare I say, beauty. Long live Zaha Hadid and Daniel Libeskind - and them wot are doing the Tate extension!
