YOU talking about racism is the biggest joke ever! Since I am not a "pure" Aryan there cannot be such a things as Aryan supremacy for me! This would be the first point.
And it was the Spaniards who started attacking France, Germany, Poland and now Italy. I think it is YOU who live in old times of supreme Spain as colonial power!
And take it as it is. Not because the majority did not vote for Madrid as best skyline you are bitching around saying how poor London's skyline is, that Rotterdam had not one single tower the size of CTBA etc. and :blah: :blah:
And I have no reason to apologize, since in my statement there was NOT A SINGLE RACIST comment, while you blame foreigners for Spain's negative sides. THIS indeed is racist and YOU should apologize!
Since Spain is in the same situation as most countries in Europe: Without immigration it would shrink! So be grateful have immigrants that keep the status quo of your country's population stable!

It just seemed more like "look it's all because of poles" (in sense of poll results) than a effort to point out that there are alot of poles on the forum. Anyway, even if there are lots of poles on the forum, so what does it change? I can also say that there are lots of french people or german people because Paris and Frankfurt has more votes than Warsaw or London, but I don't say such things because all people have right to vote, Poles or not Poles, pointing that Warsaw has more votes only because of polish forumers votes (or any other similar example) is IMO unjust.

I love some of the new proposals for warsaw but i feel at the moment,London is better.I'm far from anti-polish.
I don't have anything pro or against both London and Warsaw, everyone have a POV of their own and everyone have a right to their own POV, no matter if someone likes Madrit, London, Rotterdam or Warsaw more... get use to it, be more tolerant.

Only people who don't have anything constructive to say, use insults. I don't think there is any point to talk with people who use arguments ad personam.


ps. Sorry for my English.

I don't think the opposite was true !
The same for the Italian, Polish, Russian.. etc immigrations in France...... And it wasn't for our weather........

Immigration is quite new in Spain but not in France.........

Spain is building more kms of highways than France.. Yes because we already have our network. Since many decades (network which is used for going in Spain )...
Anyway there is a lot of Dutch and Brits who living in southern France also (especially in Midi-Pyrénées where my family knows some of them) !

After that, he wrote about High speed train lines.. while France and Germany ALREADY have a largest network since many years also.....

Of course he didn't write about unemployment rate.. Which is one of the worst of Europe in Spain (worse again since the crisis).. No comparisons possible with Germany or France (even in the "so poor" regions outside Paris), for example !!

What a great weekend to speak in that way about Europe.. (european elections)

Well, this is also called "dissociation" or "distorted perception",... That's why we should not take him so serious!

Yes not really my taste also, but as you said, it's a great video (and it was a great concert, for the parts which I remember.. I was young)...

About the "missing towers", you already know that la Déf. is growing up year after year...

But in 1990, how many cities in Europe had high-rise buildings ? London, Paris, maybe Frankfurt and...... ???

Oh and skyscrapersuperman,Landmark tower and 100 middlesex aren't completed.
Landmark is pretty much complete. But they have both topped out, they both have an impact on the skyline, and have been included in lists of existing London towers, hence they count as towers in London.

Novotel, known formerly as hotel forum, with its 106m qualifies for 1990' highrise i guess
