in the context of the road infrastructure, you could very well argue that the tower should be much taller, but rather slimmer.
I am always surprised at the intemperate language of the Garden Bridge opponents. It seems to bring out the Mr Angry in a rather unpleasant way. Of course the real scandal during this period was not the bridge, but the overspend and inordinate delay in relation to the Elizabeth Line. For some reason the Miserablists have very little to say about this, perhaps because it concerns infrastructure, rather than something designed for pleasure.
Sadiq Khan scrapped the bridge having supported it during his election campaign, which Boris Johnson did not fight. We have now developed a can’t do culture which has already killed one great bridge idea and threatens others. Another triumph for some of the above miserablists.
If you think being described as a 'boomer' is the least bit worrying, you are sadly mistaken, whoever you may be -- the cloak of anonymity the last refuge of the coward. The angry tone of the pro-Labour correspondents on t his matter, and some of their nasty language, is a clue as to why so many reasonable people voted the other way. Many architects need to escape the echo chamber too.
