Oh, that doesn't mean 'great' in that sense !

It was a geographic term !

Something to do with differentiating between the bare mainland [Britain] & including all the islands [Great Britain]...... or somesuch............

Or maybe I just dreamt the whole thing up........................
Like 'Greater Manchester' but in reality nothing is great or even good in Manchester.
"If you haven't been to Manchester, you haven't lived !"

Who said that ?

A very boring, sad, pathetic person??


Well, yes, but I really was looking for a name...................

Late Entry:


My apologies !

It wasn't Manchester !

The actual phrase was:

"If you haven't been to Birmingham, you haven't lived !"

Ah the great Ted Ray's catchphrase!!!

I like Manchester.

Great shops. Great Night life. Fantastic museum.

A nice British city worth visiting!

Ted Ray, of course !

I was thinking of Beryl Reid, but when I looked her up, she used Birmingham instead !

Ted started it, though !

Well done, Swingin !
