Nice to see the Isle of Wight doing well.

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!

THIS country.

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.


#18

Oxford’s got a cathedral


#19

Lincoln high but Lincolnshire low. Those racists in Boston and Sleaford dragging us down again.
