London was named as in the top league of cities and would get right to the
top, not just in UK but in the league of world capitals, if it could solve
its transport problems. Thus the city is seen as having many good
characteristics but ...
I'm cautious, by the way about that particluar league table, in that there
are people helping to make such judgements who will say the problem can be
solved by making London more car-friendlly. So "carfree" is still for too
many a counter-intuitive vision, although I can see no alternative.
