Michael Portillo measurements:
It's Cunard's Queen Elizabeth.
- 'It's as elegant as a cathedral'
- 'It's as tall as an office block'
- 'It's as long as a train'
Don't know how one measures elegance - other than some nice bird in the street.
Office blocks must be either 56.4 metres or 64.4 metres tall (height above waterline or height overall)
Trains are obviously 294 metres long.
By the way beam is 'one third the length of a football ground'.
(actually it is 32.3 metres)
