  • Correct?

    Isn't Sutton Coldfield part of Birmingham? It seems the managing directors need to brush up on their geography...

  • Geography...

    'Isn't Sutton Coldfield part of Birmingham? '
    Try asking that to a person from Sutton Coldfield...

  • Watford City

    When did Watford become a city (or many of the other towns mentioned here), or are they referring to Watford City North Dakota?

  • Sutton Coldfield

    It's as much part of Birmingham as Croydon is of London. My auntie lived there.

  • A City?

    Speaking as a brummie - Sutton Coldfield is (was??) part of Birmingham, but appears to have become a city overnight. How very asperational.

  • Sutton Coldfield

    Sutton Coldfield (where I used to live) should be proud to feature 65th, since it has been placed in contention with "proper cities".

    Of course, what actually happened here was that there was a single reply from a single firm in Sutton - and the people who conduct these surveys have no concept of the statistical relevance (or otherwise) of a sample of 1.

  • Sutton fiasco

    Just to get the record straight for all the Sutton Coldfield geeks out there.

    According to Birmingham City Council "Sutton Coldfield is a town within the city of Birmingham". This is because in 1974 Sutton was absorbed into Birmingham.
    Therefore Sutton is certainly not a city, but a town, and I guess arguably not divisible from Birmingham. However, as a Brummie I can say that no Brummie actually regards Sutton as part of Brum. However, as no one gives a damn what Brummies think all of the above should probably be ignored.

  • Watford City, Part 2

    I actually lived in Watford City, North Dakota (pop. 2,000) for a time as a youth. Don't knock it. The town doctor was a Glaswegian who emigrated to the US by way of Canada.
