How can you leave out Peterborough (183k) but include Cambridge - 50km down the road with a population of 124k? It's a really bad quiz. Guess some big towns but not others....

This quiz is so inaccurate - a joke. Examples - Warwick and Wokingham have populations of about 30k each. Huddersfield has 163,00 in 2011 census.

Wildly inaccurate - you can't say you have skipped some cities because you haven't heard of them - should rename the quiz - 'Biggest UK and Irish cities that I know with some misguided populations'. I'd probably do that quiz.
