Certainly Chelmsford and Perth are way more worthy candidates than Stockport. Whoever put money on St Asaph must be very happy but it's still more important historically than Stockport.

I'm not sure what the council spent on trying to get city status but whatever it was it was a waste of money. Seriously, apart from self-important idiots in the council chamber and hierarchy, who cares?

PS, topic now merged into earlier thread for completeness.

Too right, the inward investment argument is a nonsense. Businesses move and invest in an area because the area has a half decent willing workforce available at a cheap price. Reasonable real estate costs and decent infrastructure.  It's evedent that those who are keen on City status are councillors etc, nobody with a real job.
