The “Tulip” is such an absurdly stupid concept and proposal. It’s embarrasing to have a tourist attraction like that in the middle of the City, like an even larger London Eye.

Planting the Tulip turns London into a theme park

Completely agree. Where are the NIMBYs when you actually need them?

Agreed, not a fan of it in the slightest.

I love it. I imagine people said the same thing about Seattle's Skyneedle and Toronto's CN Tower.

London isn’t Seattle or Toronto. If you wanted to make a comparison, it would be to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and this is different and inferior in numerous ways.

Even the Eye is still a mistake that looks like it belongs in a theme park.

Amazing! So incredibly different from when I was there in 2009. Looks like it's time to go back...
