Birmingham branded boring, ugly and tasteless by TripAdvisor website

A survey that branded Birmingham boring, ugly and tasteless was today dismissed as “complete and absolute nonsense” by the city’s culture boss. SEE HERE

-- And I totally agree with the city's culture boss, it's a great city and I am very happy to be here right now --

The city, which has undergone radical regeneration in recent years, has been branded even more tedious than drab Zurich in Switzerland by travel website TripAdvisor.

And the poll reported that Brummies are the second most ugly in Europe behind people of Krakow in Poland.

The survey further criticised Birmingham’s food, which was rated as the third worst in the continent, behind London and Liverpool, despite the city boasting three Michelin starred restaurants and the world famous Balti Belt.

Well, I for one will not trust anything I read on the tripadvisor web site !!!!!
