The view from on high must please the billionaires!

• WHAT a view our brave billionaires must get as they look down on us from their spaceships.
It used to be just the Great Wall of China that could be seen from that vantage point, but now surely all of these massive skyscrapers that have sprung up in our cities over the past few decades – the Shard, the Gherkin, etc – must be visible.
Such tremendous monuments to human endeavour and ingenuity!
Meanwhile our great failures as a species – including leaving fellow creatures to shiver as they try to sleep rough on the streets – are nowhere to be seen.
