"A first-rate city with a second-rate country attached."
This self-initiated project addresses the economic divide between the city of London and everything outside it. London contributes the most to the national income and takes up the bulk of government spending. It is on its way to becoming the next "Capital of the World" while the rest of the UK seem to be lagging behind.
This has lead to speculation whether London would benefit more by separating itself from the rest of the country.
