Well we'll always have a Waterfront deal with it,it's not going anywhere! It'll never be inland so that point means absolutely nothing.
Every time in the future we add a new building and it doesn't necessarily have to be really big,it will make a positive impact on the Waterfront so in reality,it will always be improving.It also seems to be liked by a lot of people who aren't English aswell,people who have opinions and not an obvious bias like you have.

No, what im saying is if it was an inland city it wouldnt be well liked as it is right now it be well under all the inland cities by far, so why don't people have an open mind and look clearly and not at the waterfront

Waterfronts always make a difference,we're lucky enough to have a proper one.It wouldn't be under Leeds that's for sure because it has beautiful historic buildings that happen to be in a UNESCO World Heritage site,whereas your skyline looks like a bunch of muddled up modern (I'll use that term loosely) crap.Put water in front of that and it wouldn't make a slight bit of difference.

Water in front of the Leeds skyline wouldn't make a slight bit of difference,photoshop some if you're so confident.

This talk of Liverpool looking shit if it didnt have a water front is really annoying, the waterfront is there and the city has built along it, end off! You could use the term "if it didnt" for anything its just really stupid thing to say.

By the way i think Birmingham has the worst skyline in the UK and all the buildings look like car parks .
