    A bit of a bummer for Monmouthshire. When I was born Newport was in Monmouthshire. Newport wanted a new name to improve its image. Newport Mon is no longer good enough. Ofcourse the wags will come up with Monport or Newmouth.
    Merger is probably a good thing given that both Monmouth and Newport Councillors are considered in a similar light by constituents they may kill each other off!
    Au Contraire: Newport Mon IS good enough. It's better than the current mess of identity we have now thanks to constant meddling with local government boundaries (and certain newspapers promoting one such muddled identity)."
