She says that City of London is like Vatican City and it has its own flag. Is this true?
She said its different to London.
that belong to the City of London. Sort of.
Do you mean London Boroughs?
I assumed it was a clear and definite wind-up. It's sort of true...
But shutup about, you don't want to set marckee off on another fact-spurting episode.
It's also twinned with Berlin - I assume that Berlin reckoned they were getting twinned with London, not just a square mile.
She says you can have a City of London passport as its a proper separate country.
she's either winding you up or she's a total moron
She once asked me what SOS meant.
...called Passport To Pimlico.
The city of london is the old medieval part of London. It has been recognised as such for centuries and centuries, and has long had special laws with regards to trade etc, which is probably one of the reason so many FS companies are still based there.
The surrounding boroughs and towns became known as London as the city expanded.
Please remove one from 2012's total.
where everyones all 'oh my god you're so stupid' without actually coming up with a concrete answer themselves.
You'll set marckee and thewza off.
The City Of London (the Square Mile around St Paul’s, Bank, Liverpool Street etc) and The City Of Westminster are the two cities contained within Greater London. Westminster has kind of been subsumed as a London Borough, but the City exists in something of a halfway state. It’s run by the Corporation Of London, who also own land and estates outside of the Square Mile (eg Epping Forest). Most cities, and most boroughs have their own flags or crests, so this doesn’t necessarily make the City in itself unique, but it’s often treated more like a county, for example, and most visibly, having a police force separate from the Met.
why arent the vatican in the olympics then brainiacs?
Catholics regard the Pope as God’s representative on earth. If he was to enter a race and fail to win (which, against Usain Bolt, he almost certainly would do), it would prove that God is not infallible, and Christianity would collapse.
They have a football team though. Got pumped 9-1 by Palestine a few years ago.
looks like one of the foreign teams in the early versions championship manager
