1. PM Cameron chokes on his porridge when told of Fox News lies.

“When I heard this, frankly, I choked on my porridge and I thought it must be April Fool’s Day,” Cameron said. “This guy’s clearly a complete Idiot".

I like the place, and it is in fact better than it used to be. It's an underdog town, and I always like the underdogs.

11. I loved my time in Birmingham.

Locals thought I was a touch mad. As soon as they found out I actually chose to be there on holiday, they treated me like royalty in the pubs and wine bars. They were flabbergasted someone would pick it as a vacation spot. LOL!

(Reality: I had chosen to tag along while my husband was there on business, but I figured they could use the nice warm feeling of being truly wanted.)

Birmingham makes a great base to explore the midlands. The city itself has wonderful things to see and do and The Heart of England rail pass is awesome! I explored from Stratford to Shrewsbury while I was there.

I have been thoroughly enjoying the #foxnewsfacts on Twitter. I think my favorite is "The weather in Great Britain changes from Sunni to Shi'ite."

http://www.bnp.org.uk/news/christians-warned-not-preach-birmingham’s-muslim-no-go-area

This idiot probably extracted that to mean what he wanted it to mean.

16. I live in a city that is "totally Mexican" according to a few people...

... and they truly are afraid to visit here, much less live here.

40% of the families in my city don't speak English at home. The kids who were born here usually do, but the older people don't. That's been the history of humanity since the beginning of language.

It's mostly older, English monolingual, and I dare say Fox "News" watching fearful sorts, who remember with nostalgia when the boundaries of white neighborhoods were clearly defined and strictly enforced by law enforcement harassment, redlining, and many other means of U.S.A. apartheid, both formal and informal.

I grew up in a +99% white community where I was an outsider, not because I wasn't white, but because my parents are artists, LGBT friendly pacifists and humanists, and in no way white conservative Christians. Location was an accident of their employment. My parents fled when they retired, and me and my siblings fled apartheid U.S.A. just soon as we could. I've been a minority white guy for most of my life now. No problem. Communities where most people are white seem strange to me.

In my experience there are far too many violent exclusionary extremist racists-ideologues-religionists-nationalists of every flavor.

But all good people desire to live in peace.

If you listen to GOP candidates that live in Fox world, you can't understand a thing they are talking about. FOX news destroys your brain.

23. ELO and the Moody Blues are from Birmingham

I would not have even known that there was a place called Birmingham in England if I weren't a fan of both those groups.

I had no idea that Birmingham was such a hotbed of... whatever. Maybe that's why Jeff Lynne wears sunglasses all the time.

29. not the only b'hm bands per wikipedia. seems like the city is pretty musical.

 

maybe because it's a working class city?



During the 1960s Birmingham was the home of a music scene comparable to that of Liverpool.[153] Although it produced no single band as big as The Beatles it was "a seething cauldron of musical activity", and the international success of groups such as The Move, The Spencer Davis Group, The Moody Blues, Traffic and the Electric Light Orchestra had a collective influence that stretched into the 1970s and beyond.[153]

The city was the birthplace of heavy metal music,[154] with pioneering metal bands from the late 1960s and 1970s such as Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and half of Led Zeppelin having come from Birmingham.

The next decade saw the influential metal bands Napalm Death and Godflesh arise from the city.

Birmingham was the birthplace of modern bhangra in the 1960s,[155] and by the 1980s had established itself as the global centre of bhangra culture,[156] which has grown into a global phenomenon embraced by members of the Indian diaspora worldwide from Los Angeles to Singapore.[155] The 1970s also saw the rise of reggae and ska in the city with such bands as Steel Pulse, UB40, Musical Youth, The Beat and Beshara, expounding racial unity with politically leftist lyrics and multiracial line-ups, mirroring social currents in Birmingham at that time.

Other popular bands from Birmingham include Duran Duran, Fine Young Cannibals, Ocean Colour Scene, The Streets, The Twang, Deluka and Dexys Midnight Runners. Musicians Jeff Lynne, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Bill Ward, Geezer Butler, John Lodge, Roy Wood, Joan Armatrading, Toyah Willcox, Denny Laine, Sukshinder Shinda, Steve Winwood, Jamelia, Fyfe Dangerfield and Laura Mvula all grew up in the city.

Since 2012 the Digbeth-based B-Town indie music scene has attracted widespread attention, led by bands such as Peace and Swim Deep, with the NME comparing Digbeth to London's Shoreditch, and The Independent writing that "Birmingham is fast becoming the best place in the UK to look to for the most exciting new music".[157]
