BIRMINGHAM & LONDON - In a surprising move today, the BBC and Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. will move their base of operation to the city of Birmingham.

Many other media outlets, such as ITV and EMI Music will also move.

"We're sick of London traffic," said a BBC rep. "The studios are in the heart of the city, so getting to there is a nightmare."

Other reasons cited for moving to Birmingham is the fact that all major motorways lead to Birmingham, meaning easy transit to pretty much anywhere in the UK.

Other reasons are the cost of opening new premises in London, with plots being overdeveloped.

"Also," said a rep from EMI. "Our HQ wont be at risk from terrorist attacks, because no-one will attack Birmingham. No-one knows where the hell it is anyway. I sure as hell didn't until I visited the hometown of some cheesy band we have."

The City Council of Birmingham has welcomed the plans, with the city's Media and Arts Budget being accounted for by the new corporations.

"Oh yes," said a rep. "This will add much more to the city's economy, and will utilise the various places we have, such as the run-down estates in the east, to the rich guys in Sutton Coldfield, to the open country of Bromsgrove and Redditch."

"Suck on that, London," he added.

What will happen to London?

Screw London.
