Just LOL at people who call London 'The Greatest City on Earth'

It never ceases to surprise me and make me cringe a bit whenever I hear people say this. 

London has never been the 'Greatest City' in the world or let alone in Europe by any standard of measure.

Be it the architecture, town planning, aesthetics, people, food, attractions or simply the weather, London is nowhere near the top with any of those criteria. 

Not to mention the demographic shifts in the last 20-30 years which have made London horrendous and barely recognisable or distinct. But even in it's pre-WW2 heyday, London was nothing more than mediocre and humdrum is every sense.

The only thing London excels in is money-making and the Economy based in the City. But Capitalism and Financing do not an attractive or 'greatest City' make.
