Seeing as we got a bit nostalgic over the last few days, it got me thinking who is the greatest Brummie ever. I suppose it should be people either born there and done great things elsewhere, or people who may not have come from the City but who's greatest achievements are associated there. And I didn't know whether to open it up to the surrounding areas. Open to ideas on this but my first stab might well be Matthew Boulton. If its the surrounding areas then Shakespeare

Me?

I always enjoy watching/listening to Frank Skinner (Black Country though).

So he's my favourite entertainer from Brum.

But when it comes to culture/world fame then Cadbury/Boulton/Toilken are up there surely?

Id say Neville chamberlain, who stood up to hitlers vision of a nazi Europe before anyone else did beats the achievements of some bloke who wrote a fantasy book about a dwarf fighting a goblin for a wedding ring

Joe C would be a better shout.

How about Tony Hancock?
