Cities spin-off thread


#1

Places that are obviously just one place, but people from there inexplicably claim that they’re separate:

Manchester/Salford
Newcastle/Gateshead


#2

England/Wales/Scotland


#3

london/slough


#4

liverpool/wirral


#5

northern ireland/proper ireland

(sorry)


#6

Brighton/ Hove

if I ever hear that fucking “joke” again


#7

#8

I recently discovered that Slough is basically Windsor? Who knew???


#9

Fuck this is so tempting


#10

I mean look!

#11

I drove through Windsor the other day (spontaneous M4/ M25 traffic avoidance)

hardly a surprise but seems the like an absolute Tory motherlode of a place


#12

Airdrie/Coatbridge


#13

Bearsden/Milngavie


#14

Yeah, Windsor has SL post codes.


#15

it’s an empty threat TBH


#16

I had absolutely no idea that they were so close.


#17

I dunno. Guess it comes down to whether civic identity’s important or not. I’d consider Salford part of Manchester, but i probably wouldn’t if i was from Salford.

The boroughs around here are pretty fucked up. Places like Altrincham, for example, clearly Manchester, technically Cheshire, but if that’s the rule we’d have to take in, say, Oldham and Stockport as well, so probably for the best.


#18

there does seem to be a rather significant road dividing them though


#19

Farncombe/godalming


#20

Egglescliffe
Eaglescliffe
