They had their chance between 2010-2016. David Cameron’s father in law owns most of it.

London has way too much historical, cultural and economic significance.
Also I like being close to the capital

Yes, because London should exit the U.K. and rejoin the EU

Hull is the city of culture.
So, probably should be Hull.

All joking aside, yes. Moving the government from London would de-centralise the country and bring more investment elsewhere.

It would make a rubbish capital as there are only 80,000 people compared to over 8 million in London.

I think that Scotland and Wales should become independent and the island of Ireland be one country.

A capital city need not be the only place for many things that are 'national' though. Berlin is the capital of Germany where the seat of government is, but the main financial hub is Frankfurt and most of the main cultural attractions are in Munich, for example.

Yeah, it was a joke. But London isn’t a great capital either. I think York or Durham will be a better option.

We shouldn’t change the capital but I am very in favour of moving all the government departments and parliament from London, to one of the other major cities. Probably Birmingham or Manchester.
