Wiki–wars

Writing about web page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leicester

Ever wanted to know what the largest city in the East Midlands is ?

Several months ago, the Wikipedia entry for entry for Leicester, UK, said it was 'the second-largest city in the East Midlands', the largest being Nottingham.

  • Fact: Leicester has a larger population than Nottingham.

  • Another (less important) fact: Leicester has a smaller area than Nottingham, so it is larger, but both are smaller than Derby (hence it is not a consistent definition of city size).

With this info belittling my home town I could not put up with this, so I changed the entry to 'the most populous city in the East Midlands'.

A few weeks later, I checked whether the entry had been edited again.

Leicester is now 'the largest city in the English East Midlands'.

Never again will we have to play second fiddle to Robin Hood city, Leicester is now the largest hence the most 'important' city in the English East Midlands; now the whole world can agree with that !!!

Bugadoo.
