The Hague is pretty impresisve, why do British people always think british cities are better then the rest? Why cant they accept that most cities in the world look better than the British ones?

I dont think its a superiority complex, as most british people are quite the oposite. I think its more along the lines that British taste preffers Liverpool over the Hague. I'll ignor the last part of your sentance

Well maybe im wrong then, but i,ve read this tread totaly and it looks like britsh people only like british cities. Maybe they have to be a little bit more open minded. If they say there cars are the most good looking cars in the world than i agree but the cities...... no

Well you're definitely wrong on that one. We are a lot less biased than people think. Sure, a lot of us like our cities, but I can certainly admit that they are not the best in the world.

Fair enough. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Obvious troll. Your second comment makes that very clear.

Have you even read this thread? All of the Dutch people have voted for The Hague, but you don't accuse them of bias do you?

Apart from Leeds Troll who is on a wind up and is an idiot, no British people in this thread have claimed that British cities are the best, it's just that most are gobsmacked that The Hague can have so many more votes than all the others when places like Vilnius and Napoli aren't even in it.

Everyone is biased towards their own countries and this poll shows it.

I really didn't know what to vote for. King Edward and Shanghai Towers might make Liverpool amazing, but at the moment it's a bit sparse. I don't see there being much of a skyline for Berlin or Manchester.

The Hague looks alright at night, but not in the light in my opinion. I'd say the same for Leeds.

I Googled each city and had a look at the images on the first page to decide though.

I voted for Birmingham, because I know it's got a skyline and it looks quite dense from some viewpoints. I'm going to defend myself and say I'm trying not to be biased here, though perhaps because I'm more familiar with Birmingham I am more inclined to vote for it. I think it's an honour in itself for the UK to have 4 cities on the poll, when it's quite renowned for not being very skyscraper friendly.

Why do you think it's an honour? That was only the choice of the threadstarter, although many cities with better skylines than the ones in the poll are missing like Benidorm, Essen and others...

Im aloud my own opinion Like anyone else one here, i don't think british cities are better than other world cities. from what i see on this thread is that most people are voting for "The Hague" even though clearly it isnt on the same scale as Vienna, Birmingham or berlin, "The Hague" is on the same scale as Leeds, manchester and liverpool even though liverpool is verry impressive and got alot of beauty to its skyline. All i was saying is the poll is wrong if where talking about skylines?

And Vienna, Birmingham and Berlin are above The Hague, Leeds and Manchester? Berlin doens't have a proper skyline. I've been there and it's not much. The Hague has quite a dense skyline, and maybe the most dense of all in this thread.

That's precisely why I thought it was an honour.

Incidentally the OP stated in the first post why Benidorm isn't on the poll.

I don't think this question refers to my statement but whatever. Not only Dutch people voted for The Hague. But The Hague isn't only a beautiful and important city for the world, it also had one of the best 2nd tier skylines in Europe. That's my opinion, wich I probably share with a lot of other people.
