London really has one of the best projects in the world. Beautiful and futuristic. I love the Buildings with the bright lights and the new skyscrapers in London with the elegance of the modern times.

The identity of London is the individualism and the capitalism. London is a other word for globalisation and individual freedom. The tradition of brittain is the preference of free markets.

Yes, everyone should know, never has a really free market exist but it was more free then in the most countrys in the world.

The identity of London will never be the collectivism of a socialistic ideology. Socialism is allways collectivism and collectivism is allways socialism.

And looking in history, every step into a socialism destroys the civilisation.

If identity should works, identity can not be a collectivistic ideology but a metapher for individual freedom. a free space where people can be as they are. The word identity should represant individualism and capitalism and not collectivism and socialism. So identity is a personality for a individual human mankind. collectivistic identity can not exist because, humans are individuals.

Reading Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich August von Hayek, Austrian Economics, Murray Newton Rothbard and everyone will understand these facts.

I very much agree.

"The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions… (and) when his own preservation comes not in competition, ought he, as much as he can, to preserve the rest of mankind, and may not, unless it be to do justice on an offender, take away, or impair the life, or what tends to the preservation of the life, the liberty, health, limb, or goods of another."

John Locke

Haha wow. I guess they were like "wtf how did this actually work???". I mean London is like the master of CCTV and security. I do lots of roofing too, but London is really not a good place if you don't want to get caught... Nevertheless I made it on a random tower U/C last November. The view to the CW Skyline was awesome:





But I was too scared to climb any buildings in the city center. But... next time...

London - the big smoke... of concrete mix, great progress for a good city! The roofers video made my hands sweaty, it seems any video from a top down perspective makes my hands sweaty, must fear heights, but i'm not sure. Can't wait to study architecture here!

HS2 line construction to start in weeks after royal assent



Work should begin on Britain’s new 225mph high-speed railway line within weeks after it received royal assent on Thursday.

The go-ahead for the £22bn London to Birmingham railway line follows three years of scrutiny, including parliamentary hearings for 1,600 of the 2,588 objections to the scheme and a failed eleventh-hour bid to defeat the project in the House of Lords last month.

Phase one from London to Birmingham is scheduled to open in December 2026, with a second Y-shaped phase launching in two stages with a total bill estimated at £56bn.

Chris Grayling, transport secretary, acknowledged it had been a “long and arduous process” but pointed to the creation of 25,000 jobs during construction as well as 2,000 apprenticeships.
