Good article:

"But standing one recent morning on that empty Crossrail platform,
where construction workers in orange gear and hard hats hauled shiny
metal panels to line the walls, I still couldn't help wondering whether
the new train leads toward another glorious era for this city, or
signals the end of one."

"... Tottenham Court Road. Escalator banks descend through a sleek,
silent black ticket hall where towering, empty, white-tiled passageways
snake toward the new, vaulted train platform, curving like a half moon
into the subterranean darkness."

Ah, so the platforms do have a curve.

"hauled shiny metal panels to line the walls"

Oh dear, I hope those aren't inflammable cladding.

The NYT is infamous for its bias. I'm surprised they didn't manage to
fit blaming Trump for something into it.

This. The photos were nice, but I'd ignore any of the words. The NYT is still
hoping someone will step in and cancel Brexit.

As probably do a fair swag of Brexiteers suffering from "OMG, what
'ave we done?"

Mind you, I'm happy: you lot carved about $CAD1,000 off a $5,800
cruise, denominated in GBP.

This Brexiteer is not suffering at all. Nor any of my friends.
We do all notice that many Remainers seem to want the U. K to
fail in the cowardly new world.

Could we have that in proper English, please?
Otherwise, I'm not sure if one of these definitions applies ...

-"used in a forum post to indicate that the post serves no purpose other than to increase the poster's postcount"
or
- "often used in a sarcastic manner to indicate the pointlessness of the entire thread."
or
- you liked the previous post.
