Bolton is in Manchester's urban area. Wolverhampton is in Birmingham's. As far as I'm concerned they are part of the same city. After all, the dictionary definition of a city is an urban area unrestricted by political boundaries.

Im trying to teach the world what britain actually is about...

Its not a damp cold old boring place where people travel everywhere by umbrella and drink tea 24/7
Of course that is not what Britain is all about! But you have to admit that an Umbrella does come in handy! And tea reigns supreme in the UK! That is fact! And just to mention, I am a tea lover!!!!

And London has some beautiful architecture!

"Of course that is not what Britain is all about!"

You'll be surprised at how many think (or want to think) otherwise.


My umbrella statement was actually a reference to Mary poppins...



Twas a joke, but Im sure only few got it.
