BBC News: Why did UKIP do less well in London? Fascinating points on London’s role in UK economy: “[S]ome 70% of all worldwide economic activity takes place in the world’s 600 largest cities. And the most vital cities [...] are those that are most connected by becoming hubs or waypoints for skilled people, for goods, for services, for capital, and for data. On this view, London is one of only six truly connected cities, along with New York, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. [...] What is striking about this half-dozen of the global elite metropolises is that three of them, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, are city-states.”
