  • "Quote 'Newport opposition Tory group leader Matthew Evans '
    Humm afraid of getting the ' chop ' if goes ahead ?
    On the other hand Newport is called Newport, Borough of Newport and Monmouthshire ,Monmouthshire,( as in Chepstow, Monmouthshire ) yet Newport is still having the recognised Gwent as a county,( but Gwent does not exist ) plus we have Gwent as in ' Gwent police ' and before Gwent, Newport was Monmouthshire ( as on my birth certificate plus we were in England before border changes and it shows on my 1966 old World atlas )
    Confused ?
    Anyway when the ' Rhyder Cup ' came to Newport a certain person which I shall not name ( think he is not a Newport Luvver )
    Had the name The vale of Usk ,so maybe as it brought £28 million to the Local economy, should the 2 be called that if the ' dream ' goes ahead ????"
