Nickname for people who live in Birmingham, UK

for Canadians, this term isn't considered insulting by residents, but people outside the area usually use it in a derogatory
I heard the phrase "patronize the brummies" on three separate occasions during my 2 weeks in the UK last year. (eg. a review of a Birmingham restaurant in a London paper: "...menu screams, "Let's patronize the brummies" with items like "Cold Borscht Soup").
My wife and of course in-laws are brummies, so I don't share this derogatory opinion (often).
