Oh, that Birmingham...!

How well do you expect members of the European Parliament to know the patch they are elected to represent...?

Brummie Tom Watson MP has a story that suggests that the Tory MEPs elected to represent the West Midlands can't tell the difference between Britain's second city and a town in Alabama...

And the only reason Mr Watson knows is because he nicked the story off the blog of one of his constituents ...

Strange considering the ToryMEP website had been like this for months that he only spotted it after I blogged about it.
