Funny how the view-count of the London thread has suddenly surged ahead of the Paris one when it was trailing behind by about 3000 views only 2 hours ago....
And it's still rising like crazy right now.

Who's cheating now ?


SO143, London Fox, Porto nutjob or one of the numerous other London no-life propagandists have been hard at work this evening, it seems.

At least it's a nice change of pace from flooding every section of SSC with thousands of London pictures all the live long day.

Hermitage Plaza are impressive towers, but they ruin the whole skyline from the city center, imo. Aesthetics in urban planning is what Paris is most well-known for, if you allow private investors to build whatever they want wherever they get the highest profit you'll end up having a London-like city, which is amazing in its own way, but not in the same way as Paris ought to be.

Brits are so pathetics ... at least the rat and his friends .. but Paris was the first to reach the million views -and not artificially-

Who cares...we don't have a couple of blokes to bump the thread every single hour 365 days/year to get as many views as possible...those people must have a miserable existence to spend it doing that...whatever, let's be back on topic please.

ps: let's not generalise, some brits are very well worth it...thank god.

Man you have to respect, that's not acceptable. This argument has to stop, it doen't make any sense and it doesn't matter how many views have each other, it's ridiculous. The ONLY really importante matter is how much foreign and private investment each one is getting.

We have to accepte London is doing extremely better than Paris in this period. In a mature why we need to understand it and see what politics they have adopted to boost that much the private investment in the entire city and decide how we could implement them in the city to improve our degraded situation.

I think we should be happy for their progress and enjoy how this Global City well connect to Paris is growing that well. If we are getting left behing it's not their fault it's our and our politicians in the recent periods of Paris and of the country to fail to boost our competitiviness.

Actually, the symmetry of the skyline from this point of view (Tour Osmose on the left-Avenue De Gaulle running to the Arche de la Défense-Hermitage Plaza on the right) reminds me of the spirit of XIXth century Paris, the jardin à la française.... Definitely nothing to do with London.

I have notified Matthieu, who is an administrator of SSC, but apparently some English trolls such as the one in the post preceding mine keep coming in this thread and creating stupid tags.

Feel free to contact Matthieu and other SSC admins if you want this solved, since the local mods here are doing nothing about it.
