2020.

This is almost like turning a historical city like Rome to New York City. It will never happen! London has too many historical monuments/buildings and landmarks that In my opinion should not be replaced.

As stupid as It may seem.. by your standards.. it is still opinion. Keyword=Opinion. You could argue my opinion but there is no need to insult. And back what you say with evidence or logic. At least give a reason next time!

well, lets be realistic, London is very historic, but it certainly is no Rome. The Skyscrapers being planned for the city are not replacing historic buildings or monuments, in most cases they are replaced post war, concrete monstrousities. Also, London is a Vast city, the small amount of skyscraper construction in 'the city' and canary wharf will have no effect on other parts of the city, where there are far more historic buildings and monuments.

Well of course, however I don't suggest this would benefit London.

Then again I don't think it is a good Idea to take away the history of London, so some elements of London should NOT be touched In my opinion.
