Go Birmingham!

As an ex-pat I’m good at spotting the difference between English towns and the U.S. named equivilants.  However, unfortunately Birmingham (UK) City Council are not as good at realising there is more than 1 Birmingham and they have printed 360,000 (BBC News have increased this number to 720,000!!!) showing the skyline of Birmingham, Alabama!

For the full story read The Telegraph – Birmingham council uses skyline of Birmingham Alabama on leaflet and the Birmingham Mail – Council bosses use Alabama skyline on leaflet.

Good old Birmingham!
