Definitely Sydney.
Tokyo isn't bad either. Hong Kong is a little muggy in the summer but I'd be fine there. All of those 3 are B+ and higher.
After that, Probably would have to say London though I'd prefer it to be warmer (Paris would be better even though it's just a minor difference).
NYC is a C. Too cool for much of the year and spring/fall are way too short.
Dubai is similar just opposite reason. Too hot for much of the year. Also too dry.
Singapore is a D. Hot and humid year round with no seasons to speak of. At least Hong Kong and Dubai have cooler seasons.

London: the best! I chose that!
New York City: it can get a bit cold in the winter, also too hot and humid in the summer.
Hong Kong: winters are too warm and summer lows are awful.
Tokyo: summer lows are terrible, but at least winters are good.
Sydney: good, but it gets horrible heat waves in summer sometimes.
Dubai: too hot in summer, too warm in winter.
Singapore: too hot and humid year round.

London is the winner!

Okay, fair enough.

Sydney CBD gets around 140 rainy days on the 0.2mm threshold. Though the airport, which is also on the coast, gets 128. The western suburbs vary between between 110-115. So it depends on the region.

London, Sydney (tie, ideal would be half-way between -- think Port Elizabeth, South Africa for my ideal)
Tokyo
Hong Kong
New York, Singapore, Dubai (I don't know which would be worse, though for very different reasons).

6. Dubai...............far too dry, temperatures are mostly okay.
7. London.............too cool and cloudy.
Summers here are pretty variably, but they're still rather hot. What's your ideal summer like?

I like both Singapore and Hong Kong but because I can only choose one I chose Singapore.

Yeah I'm surprised. It's seasonal enough to get classic NH seasonal features such as cherry blossom and autumn leaves and it gets "interesting" weather like a bit of snow and the odd typhoon, enough to add some excitement without usually causing much damage.
