There’s a, probably apocryphal tale, about a Soviet “long lasting lightbulb”being invented — it was a big splash story one day in Pravda, but from thereon in got less and less interesting, ending up with the tiny phrase ‘light bulb still on’ appearing every day in a tiny corner. And that’s how I felt about this story in the Birmingham Post this morning:
The Lonely Planet says Birmingham is a “vibrant city”. Nice, but not new. Not “news”.
So, Birmingham still “vibrant” then, carry on, as you were.
