At no point in London do you ever feel the same kind of sardine-can mentality that you do in, say, Seoul or Tokyo. It's relatively spacious, and certainly not buckling under the pressure of an extra few million people. There's a whole lot of sky to expand into.
Without counting all the engineering spectacles from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the UK's infrastructure is alright, but nothing special. When Blair and Brown were in power, things got pretty awful.

Also, have you ever seen Tokyo apart from a train station during rush hour? It gets crowded as cities tend to do, and I've certainly experienced sardine-can conditions in London. Tokyo's density is actually lower than you think, usually compared to around that of Brooklyn.

Those years saw the introduction of the Oyster Card, the introduction of the London Overground, the introduction of the London Cycle Hire, the introduction of Tramlink, the approval/start of Crossrail, the approval/start of the Thameslink Programme, the third stage extension of the DLR, Heathrow Terminal 5, the introduction of HS1 and so on.

Things certainly improved here during that period, compared to the preceding years.

Most of the aforementioned projects were already in the works during the late-Thatcher and Major administrations. Approval and subsequent execution by socialists has been a trainwreck (no pun intended) with little in common to the original visions.

There are very few real socialists left in British politics, and Blair certainly wasn't one of them. Not sure where this idea originates from.

On topic, I'm still not convinced by Newfoundland; it seems to disrupt the rising character of the Canary Wharf cluster, and feels to me as it if would be better placed behind One Canada Square (although I don't know how feasible that would be).

I'd agree that, in that render, Newfoundland is disruptive.

But, at the risk of stating the obvious, that render is a two dimensional representation. In reality, there is no absolute "behind" Canada Square. Newfoundland will be behind, in front of or to one or other side of Canada Square depending on where it is viewed from.

It'll be a great addition to the growing Canary Wharf cluster, IMO, and any negative visual impact that it might initially have from some angles will hopefully be diminished - if not altogether eliminated - as the cluster grows.

I do somewhat agree, but we need developments like this to effectively enlarge the cluster, otherwise we will have the 3 dominant towers in Canary Wharf forever.
