We’ve debated these endlessly on DiS before, but the official results are in thanks to a YouGov pol of the great British public:
Nice to see the Isle of Wight doing well.
Also: is Ely a city? @thewarn
Also, wtf is St David’s?
Ely and St Davids: both cities
It’s a city. Keep up m9
Voted for by the people that brought you Brexit. Must be right then.
Lichfield? WELLS? Pffft.
Bath second?? What a crock o shite
Were the only voters in this people who go on coach holidays?
Get yourself a cathedral and you’re sorted city-wise.
Not if yr Guildford
Yeah, Luton’s nice… oh wait-
A proper shower
You’d think, but Ely had to wait until the 70s or something to become a city. Had a cathedral for literally hundreds of years!
Yep, and Oxford and Cambridge - no cathedrals, but they’re cities too!
In fact, even York, the most popular city, doesn’t have a cathedral (EDIT, before I’m marckeed - apparently a minster does count as a cathedral).
So on the whole (few exceptions, obviously) people like the really caucasian places and don’t like the multicultural cities…
Lots of innate anti-midlands bias too. Sad to see.
Oxford’s got a cathedral
Lincoln high but Lincolnshire low. Those racists in Boston and Sleaford dragging us down again.
So it does! My ecclesiastical knowledge is on poor form this morning. And it’s at the sister college of my own. Most distressing.
