Probably because its the best one on here which is the idea of these threads, instead of someone posting on the leeds forum for everyone to come on this thread and vote for it because it only managed 4 votes.

Btw i was up in leeds the other day and thought i would take a construction photo of a new tower going up, hope u like it

Grow isnt the word mate, birmingham needs to get domolishing its skyline, and then start putting up more new buildings, half of its skyline is old and scruffy with only a couple of modern talls there, am sorry but birmingham looks poor when you see most of there towers, manchester is far the most modern and ahead of them all liverpool skyline is nice but have you ever been to liverpool the area around them talls is just wasteland and nothing else its a cold breezy place with no sence of welcome and no sence of feel to the place,Leeds might have a shit skyline but it beats birmingham as a city in everyway and same goes for manchester beats every city going outside london, Leeds has a nice skyline its just no one ever seems to take good pictures of it, you come to leeds by train or even entering from m1 or m62 and you would see how impressive the skyline is,

Birmingham and Liverpool have the best skylines in the UK after london, im sorry but Manchester and Leeds can take a jump.
All that Leeds builds is student accomodation and thats it and thats its skyline.

Hague looks a very nice skyline and yes why are there so many "English" cities on this poll, what about Barcelona???Amsterdam???

Haha, Manchester Owns Birmingham all over, Birmingham skyline is a peace of shit no matter what you say i would rather have the skyline of Leeds than the skyline of birmingham, liverpool is better than birmingham too so you got all three cities what own it for the 2nd largest UK city and having a skyline like it does is a discrace, all them old office blocks and them tacky apartments its just not doing it for me,Leeds has big student towers because its the city with the most students in give Leeds 10 years when its built the real office blocks and the tall apartments, and its not like the student towers are slap bang in the centre of Leeds and in one area it has better advantage than birmingham in my opinion.

It's nothing to do with the poll, the poll is wank anyway people are just voting on how many buildings there are on the skyline and not what they are, amsterdam owns the hague but it isnt at the top because theres not as many buildings and thats what people go on because to be fair birmingham has no skyline if you demolish the 1960s crap, and if anyone hasnt notice 60% of the birmingham skyline is council flats?
