They should just put a ban on high rise buildings. They are not a good thing at all.

I know some lovely high rises, that are well looked after, pose minimal additional fire risks and have a great sense of community.

As with anything, it's not the size of your construction, it's what you do with it that counts.

We often think that when we have completed our study of one we know all about two, because 'two' is 'one and one.' We forget that we still have to make a study of 'and.'
