    Not only does Birmingham have the second largest population, it furthermore pumps £121bn into the UK economy, compared to Manchester's piddling £98bn.

    Culturally it is probably more well known and visited than Birmingham, the BBC have a large base there, and then there are the 60,000 or so plastic football supporters that pass through there on the way to Trafford every fortnight or so.
