Maybe Newcastleguy, it would interested to explain why you are not seeing Britain as European, when Ireland sees itself as European.
You, English people are exasperating sometimes. Maybe do you see Britain as a North American country or as An Asian country ?
Maybe as Michael Bruter, an scholar from the LSE, explained in 2003 that the "Impact of News" has an Influence on the "European Identity". It means that the constant European bashing in all English newspapers, except in the Independent, has a negative impact on English perception of their European Identity.
Or Maybe, this is because, as the biggest (dead) empire of the world, English people feel superior than any other European citizens.

But even if English try for any reason to explain their feeling of Non European coutry, I wonder why they are so desperate to compare everything in England with the "continent". I wonder why their cuisine habbits are so Continental. I wonder why their soccer championship is So European. I wonder why their "culture" and "hobbies" are so European.
Newcatleguy, I know you actually can't give me any answer, on this matter. its ok, I am studying in Nottingham and I am doing my MA dissertation on European Identity, I still have few months to find it.
But when you compare cities in Europe, consider Britain as a European country. It always much easier to use the same standards. Imagine that a Japanese or an American are not going to understand your subtle division od the "continent".

Anyway, thanks for everyone, for keeping posting on this thread. any news of the new "Carpe Diem" Tower ?

I suggest you guys open a dedicated thread to deal with that issue. We're getting way off topic.

lol. I don't feel my country is superior. I do not however understand the 'dead' empire satement. Well actually, yes, the empire may be gone, but London is growing hugely in world importance, so I think I can live with the 'dead empire'

If you want to continue this, please PM me Europeo. Let us talk about the Paris projects here.

Another tower undergoing massive renovation/refurbishing. It's called tour Courcellor 2, it is located in Levallois-Perret, just by the border with the City of Paris. This is how it should look once completed. I don't think renderings have been posted here before.

No, it's completely opposite the Levallois twin towers. It's located just by the border of the City of Paris (by the Périphérique).
