Birmingham is a big city in the West Midlands. It is the second city in the UK behind London, and has loads of friendly locals, Chavs and canals. Birmingham grew from being a tiny village or hamlet in the early Middle Ages to being the second city in Britain. Then Birmingham suffered badly in the recession of the 1980's. The Late 2000s recession also affected Birmingham. Far too many Birmingham businesses have closed and are still closing. Some Birmingham people have lost their jobs and many more fear unemployment.
Liberals and othersEdit
Unfortunately the Muslims are not always as accepting as the other people. In some parts of Birmingham anyone who says a bad word about Muslims risks having angry threatening looks in his/her direction. Some Muslims respect Free speech but by no means all. Intolerant Muslims think it is right for them to impose their beliefs and values where they can.
The problem exists primarily in areas with significant Muslim population and Birmingham residents outside these areas may not know of the trouble. Two men decided on a sponsored charity walk wearing very little, they expected no trouble and brought their wives and Children. When these nearly nude walkers went through Sparkhill, a Muslim area they were surprised at the reaction. The walkers needed a Police escort after they were pelted with eggs, stones and threatened, their children were badly upset.  Unfortunately less liberal Muslims do not consistently respect the beliefs and values of those who disagree with them, then their critics are accused of Racism. By no means all Birmingham Muslims are like this but a small number can be intimidating.
Steven Emerson of Fox News imagines that in Birmingham, "Muslim religious police [beat] anyone who doesn't dress according to Muslim, religious Muslim attire". Also that there are only Muslims in Birmingham.

Steven Emerson was asked to testify to at least one US Congressional committee.  Liberapedia is a bit disturbed and we wonder what type of experts advise the governing body of the most powerful nation in the World.
Birmingham is often refereed to a 'Brum' and its inhabitants as 'Brummies'.
The Birmingham accent is regarded, by many people, as one of the ugliest in the United Kingdom, even worse than a Stokie accent, and that's saying a lot. Birmingham people naturally put this low opinion of their accent down to Prejudice and just move on with their lives. Hence Brummy karaoke is one of the most underrated touristic attractions.
