The Emperor Mongs Pronouncements

St Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall and Dornoch Cathedral are both Church of Scotland and are Cathedrals.
No, they were Cathedrals.

The title of city is awarded by the monarch, and always has been, the old chestnut of having to have a cathedral to qualify is just that, boll0cks. Wolverhampton was one of seven given city status by aunt betty in the year 2000. ;)
Indeed, as I posted elsewhere, city status is granted by Royal Charter alone. It does not necessarily have to have a building named 'cathedral', meaning Bishop's seat, being the principal church of the diocese (see York & Hull for example although they do contain the diocesan main church) or even need to have the Bishop's primary seat within its bounds.
 
Same here. I realised that it had started to go to ratsh1t in the mid 1990's when my kids' nursery school had to put razor wire up on the perimeter walls, and they employed a permanent security presence.

Mid '90s you say...

Got our details for G7 confirmed today. Can’t go into deployment details but I’ll be living on the hired Scandinavian ferry liner. I plan on taking a couple of decent books, some downloaded films and a couple of bottles of “old scrotum warmer”. But I suspect the subtle hand of the Lord of Chaos in the planning. “I know, let’s put 1500 coppers, most in their 20s to 40s, together for a week, close the bars etc. What could possibly go wrong?” Knowing what coppers are like it’s going to be a monumental bonkfest. Carry on Cruising for the modern age!

Anybody know if @devexwarrior is on a ventilator yet...

I think he said that he's on the cruise liner, not the ferry.

His exact words were Scandinavian ferry liner. Like in the linked story.
