How much do you want to bet that it stays at this height for another month?

I hope I'm wrong, I have enjoyed this weeks progress

I'm wondering if the apparent delay at the current spire level was something to do with the installation of the window cleaning arms (or what look like them) on that floor (there were none on the first level of the spire etc).

The fact that the Mercury Tower will be the tallest in Europe doesn't contradict to the fact that the Shard will be the tallest in Europe or the Federation Complex will be the tallest. The record holders remain the record holders forever. although the records are different.
Since the Mercury Tower construction is very slow now the Shard has a big chance to become the tallest in Europe.
