    Great, but England needs a new capital too, and there's no way that the capital of the UK is going to move out of England in the long-term.
    Cardiff is in the UK, it asks for the capital of Britain. I put forward a great proposal.

    Couldn't you just rebuild London? Seems like such a waste of space on a tiny island like this...

    Oh, sorry well I just assumed because London is so big, and obviously big population. But then I thought maybe size doesn't matter so much because Edinburgh isn't exactly big is it.

    But I stuck with Birmingham regardless :p:
    It's OK lol, I know what your like (Again, not in a bad way).

    No, it's just that, from what I've seen, you are pretty easily wound up.

    It's cool though, you seem like a nice person

    It'd probably be Brimingham (right between 'The North' and 'The South', but I think Edinburgh, Cardiff, or maybe Belfast should, because they are already the capital of their nations.

    St Albans; we have the Mayfair spot on the Monopoly board, we're close to London and have good transport links with everywhere else.

    Which one would be the best contender, in terms of everything really. Don't *just* choose by size.
    either Manchester (i hope) or Birmingham (urgh)

    The only reason people seem to pick Manchester is because it's ''nicer''. And Leeds ahead of Birmingham? That takes the pee, can't take you seriously now.

    No substance whatsoever, since even if you widen Manchester's boundaries, the population still wouldn't be as big as Birmingham's. Birmingham is 2nd city in everyway, it has greater GDP than Manchester, greater pupulation, greater size.... I don't base it on which city is nicer, but the fact of the matter.
    Is B'ham's GDP greater than that of Greater Manchester?

    If you want to compare Manchester to other cities, you have to use either Greater Manchester, or if not that then the Manchester Urban Area. I've already told you that the City of Manchester only refers to the central part of the urban area.

    And as for Leeds, well, Leeds is the UK's biggest financial, business and legal centre outside of London.

    Didn't know LONDON was capital of BRITAIN
    Well now you do.

    London's still top dog even if you include other cities in Britain.
