Cool map of the day: the UK divided up into areas with London-sized populations

If you’ve ever thought London is a pretty big deal, here’s the proof. In the above map, Redditor LB4 has carved up the UK into eight areas, each of which has a population less than Greater London.

That’s right: there are more people living in our dark-grey splodge than the entire of Wales and  south-west England, for example. And London’s population is bigger than Scotland’s, Northern Ireland’s, north-east England’s and north-west England’s put together.

No wonder it feels a bit crowded from time to time…
