^ Most of the world is irrelevant then seeing as most of the busiest stations are in Japan and even then most are in Tokyo.
Anyone with a brain will see that this isn't the case though/

Waterloo is not really busy compared to stations in the mainland. At some times in the day it's almost quiet. From a European point of view, it's not even in the top 10. It may be relevant for those who enter London through it but, in a European perspective, it's not. St Pancras is the only rail station that's worth noting since it connects Britain with the mainland, whereas Waterloo is used my commuters. When HS2 gets built, many more stations will acquire more importance in the European network.

The only real troll here is SE9 which picks up random negative views I have expressed, leaving out on purpose every positive one I have given, just to dismiss the negative ones as 'trolling'.

For example, I think the V&A extension is appropriate to the museum, generally cool, and I like it.

But since I don't like the Tate Modern extension, SE9 will dismiss a negative comment by me (or by anyone else) as trolling, because he's incapable of conceiving dissent from what he thinks.
The biggest stations in Asia or on the continent are entirely irrelevant to the vast majority of people who travel through Waterloo on a daily basis. Those stations are also, more importantly, entirely irrelevant to this thread.

Waterloo is London's busiest station. So it was more than a bit silly for you to have described it as irrelevant in a thread that is specifically about London.

But I suspect that you already know that.

This is an international forum, it's pretty obvious that London has to be compared with the outside world. But it's also true that, most likely, those who live in London have become incapable of accepting criticisim.

Farewell.

I don't live in London, but saying that London Waterloo is an irrelevant station is a stupid comment even compared to rest of the world. It'd be like dismissing the busiest station in France or Germany or the US just because when compared to the scarily busy Japanese stations they're not that busy.

Bye!👍

It's expected to be complete around 2019-2020.

On the subject of Battersea, the project launched last night with a special guest:


Sir Elton John stuns celebrity-packed crowd at exclusive Battersea Power Station show
Evening Standard
1 May 2014


Quote:
The new development at Battersea Power Station launched last night with a special performance from Sir Elton John at a glittering celebrity bash.

The iconic building, which is currently undergoing a £750 million facelift to be turned into luxury homes, played host to the party which saw prospective buyers rubbing shoulders with the stars for a greatest hits performance from the legendary singer.

Thousands packed in beneath the famous chimneys for a one-off performance by the 67-year-old, who reportedly charges as much as £600,000 for a private show, with proceeds going to charity.

The electric 90-minute set, which was watched by showbiz names including Grace Jones, Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, comedian Jack Whitehall and his actress girlfriend Gemma Chan, included hits such as Rocketman, Your Song, Tiny Dancer and Benny and the Jets.

Bounding on to the stage in a sparkling black jacket, Sir Elton told the audience: “I never thought I’d be playing in Battersea Power Station. It’s going to be an amazing development.”

Invites for the exclusive event had been sent to those who had expressed interest in the 3,500 homes planned for the site, which start at £800,000 for a studio and go up to £4 million for a four-bedroom home.

With no model homes yet to show, instead the site was transformed into a lavish festival complete with food vans and entertainers, with a dazzling light show across the building finishing off the night.

Harington told the Standard: “I’d never seen a proper show and that was beautiful. A real artist like him gets everyone dancing at the end.”

Made in Chelsea’s Ollie Locke had more reasons than the music to support Sir Elton.

“I work a lot with his AIDS foundation. My uncle died of Aids in the 80s so I support anything he does because I think he is amazing,” he said.

Actor Ian McKellen was also on the guest list, but was potentially a victim of the tube strike as he was spotted squeezed into a packed tube earlier in the evening and there was no sign of him at the gig.

The party, which will be an annual event, raised money for four local charities including Battersea Cats and Dogs Home.

Rob Tincknell, CEO of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “Thank you to Sir Elton John for a stunning show at our first party, held to celebrate the remarkable heritage of the site and recognise the efforts of so many people who are helping to create a new vibrant community at Battersea Power Station. The power is definitely back on at Battersea.”

The site is owned by Malaysian investors who last month unveiled designs for 1,300 homes by esteemed architects Frank Gehry, who designed the Bilbao Guggenheim, and Norman Foster, who built the Gherkin.

It's got nothing to do with accepting criticism.

It has everything to do with you being gratuitously provocative.

There would have been nothing wrong with pointing out that Waterloo isn't the biggest or busiest station in the world (even if no one had made such a claim in the first instance). But you couldn't stop yourself from saying something imbecilic about Waterloo being "irrelevant".

So you got the response you asked for and deserved.

Farewell to you too. You won't be missed.
