Please try not to laugh because this is very serious. Coventry has left the City Region of Birmingham, Coventry & the Black Country.
Since Telford & Wrekin parted company with the city region, it’s become more and more irrelevant as its focus narrows to providing the same Birmingham-centric services as the plethora of regional quangos infesting the euroregion. In other words, a pointless duplication.
They had to change their name from Birmingham, Black Country & Coventry City Region after West Midlands NO! registered the name to the City Region of Birmingham, Coventry & the City Region. They can’t call themselves the City Region of Birmingham, Coventry & the Black Country now that Coventry is no longer part of it so I wonder what they’ll call their quango now … has anyone though about Greater Birmingham?
Anyway, I’m sure the City Region’s unelected leader, Dr Simon Murphy, will appreciate any helpful suggestions you might have. His email address is email@example.com and his phone number is 0121 464 8168. Let him have your suggestions, I’m sure he’ll appreciate them.
