A few things have happened since we first posted about the error made by Tories representing Birmingham, England. The story for those not familiar with it is that representatives for England’s Second City launched a new website recently. The site included a skyline image… of Birmingham, AL.

We’ve learned that the site was up with the error for some time, at least since January 3 when this post first pointed out the error. UK bloggers have been enjoying pointing out the error, one that representatives are calling “a simple mistake”. What’s interesting to us is that it didn’t get fixed until about an hour after the British blogosphere exploded with posts about it (we luckily got ours up in that hour, just before the image was taken down).
