Fox News forced to concede Birmingham does not exist
A spokesman for the derided TV Channel said: ‘We apologise whole heartedly to the citizens of the UK, for implying that such a fanciful place existed. Not only is Birmingham not a Muslim caliphate as we had suggested, but neither is it populated with centaurs or the popular reggae band UB40’.
However, the British Government confirmed it still planned to go ahead with its HS2 rail link to the Midlands. A travel minister said: ‘You don’t think we’d want high speed travel to Birmingham if it was a real place, do you?’
