That's a rather strange definition of "The Midlands"


Boltar clearly comes from sarf of the Thames.

I have a vague memory that if you try to divide the UK by population
into three equal parts with two east-west lines, one goes through St.
Albans and the other through Peterborough. But I could be wrong and
can't be bothered to seek out the data and reconstruct it.


Sorry, doesn't pass scrutiny

If we just look at GB,

the total population is around 61,500,000,

so one third is 20,500,000

Population of Scotland + NW + NE + Yorks regions is 20,300,000, and that
doesn't include the part of Wales and East Mids that are north of the
southernmost point of the others.

So a line somewhere around Chester demarcates the Northern part

Adding in NI to consider UK as a whole moves the point further North

SE + SW + London is 22,000,00 so a point somewhere between St Albans and
Luton could be the southern part

Its all norf o' wotfard init?

I guess it depends how you define bedfordshires location. I'd call it the south
midlands and I'd say "the south" ends at the northern hertfordshire border.
But thats just how I think of it, ymmv.

Ignoring some that shifted at the weekend the old ITV regions were a
reasonable guide to where an area
was supposed to be a situation that is completely mucked up now with
places like Bicester being reported on
on broadcasts alongside reports about Bournemouth.

I suppose you prefer to call it North London?

You're assuming I still live in London. But keep guessing, its amusing.
