As for your assertions they are restricted to your own over inflated opinions coupled with your own personal hatred and agenda, and it is this that keeps bringing you back to this forum in your various guises in order to spout nonsense regarding London and the UK.

I have never stated anything negative about NYC, and have merely posted facts regarding London, backed up by links and evidence rather than simple opinion.
I have never said anything negative about London or the UK, and have only said anything remotely negative about British people's behavior on this forum and on the internet, specifically - after they viciously insulted and slandered the US.

You can't whine about Americans insulting the UK when you insult America first. You see this all the time. British people acting bruised and banning Americans from forums for being "too pro-America". The arrogance, the agenda, and the "personal hatred" is pure gaslighting and projection.

I almost never see Americans exhibit such arrogance and superiority unless provoked by arrogance from Europeans, Canadians and British people, who have a long history of slandering the United States to make themselves feel better about their own nationality. To deny that Americans are pretty much never the instigators in these situations is dishonest.

The "Americans are arrogant" BS is insecure projection from Canadians, Europeans or Europhiles on this forum who slander the US for everything, and if any poster dares argue in favor of the US on too many threads, it's the block for them - they're "trolling".

But Canadians and Brits can spout off childishly written, insulting, biased nonsense that disadvantages the US at every turn, call American cities "horrible", Americans "stupid", America a "third world country" across hundreds of forums, and somehow, they are never banned for trolling. Hmmm.

Lmao - fail.

Sure, Brussels and Cairo are more active cities than New York - not.
The night-time economy is a growing part of the UK economy. Nationally, it is the UK's fifth-biggest industry, accounting for at least 8% of the UK's employment and annual revenues of £66bn in 2018, according to the Night Time Industries Association.

London’s night-time economy contributes £17.7bn to £26.3bn in Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy in 2014, and supports 723,000 jobs – one in eight in London

That figure is likely to grow by a further £1.63 billion a year by 2026, and by £2 billion a year by the end of that decade as another 66,000 jobs are added.

London has a significant entertainment and culture economy and this is reflected in it's night time economy.

Yeah, it does, but New York was reputed as a 24 hour city because of the services that remain open 24 hours. Based on my visits to both, this seems to be far more true of NYC than of London.

London has 24 hour services from shops to petrol stations to pharmacies to emergency plumbers and electricians through to vehicle repair through to hairdressers and transport, health facilities, late night cinemas, fast food/coffee/bagel outlets, casinos, bars, restaurants and clubs, as well as other entertainment venues including theatres such as Shakespeare's Globe etc etc.

London also has plans to significantly increase it's already substantial night time economy.

In terms of overseas visitors, London has 19,233,000 compared to New York City with 13,600,000.

NYC has far more energy.

London is quite spread out and lacks "something".

I do not know why but London is full of sheltered middle class European kids moving to London to play urban dwellers. I mean the minute you hear a Swiss brat talking about how cool her life in London is, you know it is not a cool city at all.

NYC has a blue collar roughness to it. There is something about the city that just makes you feel energentic.

Yet another new account and yet more of the same nonsense.

Central London including the main entertainment and theatre districts are not spread out at all, they are in what is known as the West End, and anyone who had any knowledge of London knows this.

As for London's population it's diverse and is not made up of so called sheltered middle class European kids.

Even with the new accounts to bolster NYC in the poll, London is still ahead. This is too funny. NY'ers do not like their city challenged.

London > NYC

It is great you claim to be a New Yorker living in Florida..... but most of us know different as post do not say a New Yorker whatsoever. A Canadian yes. Though I would just bet on not a American as just so clear by agenda.

Still in the World forum. It is always non-American cities win these polls. Not saying it is unfair. Just some posters enjoy a anti-American sentiment and push it. As for one posting against London? That is another call as claimed a known poster also.

Sometimes it is best not to show such a pattern that everyone can tell. Still it says a lot when we all see it.

I do not vote in polls this kind of poll. I do not need to lessen either one of these cities to make any point. Both deserve their votes and I have no agenda to lessen European cities. They stood the test of time and centuries and even NYC has its value in especially the 20th century. Some say the 20th century was America's century and this one will be China's...... Then some bicker about which of these cities is far superior. I say neither is far superior and BOTH deserve their due. No one claims one is like the other..... and that is being on different Continents also.

I love my fans like you. It's so entertaining to watch you guys scramble to try and figure out what I am and where I'm from because you're hurt by my posts...

Tell us more about your investigations into me. Let's hear more about your theories and the "patterns" you've discovered...LMAO
It's soooo entertaining... Seriously, tell us more...

All can look at any of our history of post and remember those we see that we read in threads also. You denied nothing also. If you do not want anyone to view your history? You can stop it and limit it to just friends.

Entertaining can go both ways. These forums are basically that for the most part. I learn some things by facts provided and also more about posters. We all are a sum of our pattern of post and agendas formed.
