It seems to me like other major cities in England have a more significant impact on the cultural fabric the country than Birmingham
Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Bristol, London, Newcastle
They all seem to be 'personality' cities that carry a lot of cultural weight and contribute towards people's perception of the nation.
But Birmingham? I grew up about 30 miles from there and I'd struggle to talk about it for more than twenty seconds. In fact I have pretty much zero connotations of Birmingham or anything or anyone from there. Even their football team is shitty
whose with me?
