London Bridge Tower will add to city's status

I am an ordinary citizen, living and working in London, with no connection to construction or architecture. The pride I have in my city, already considerable, would swell in my chest on my commuter run into London, on looking upon the magnificent spire that I hope will be the London Bridge Tower.

Why does the Evening Standard and others against this project react to the prospect of its construction with such poison and doom-laden hatred?

The constant referring to it as 'the shard of glass' is pure drama-queening get over it.

London is a diverse, daring and heritage-rich world city that can more than accommodate all the styles and sizes of structures that add to its grandeur and create awe and affection to people all around the world.

Stop dreaming of London being a kind of Verona and try to take pride in London as a forward-moving world city with flair and history.
