    Any reorganisation needs to address identity issues. The new councils need to be called "districts" or "regions", not counties and boroughs The lieutenancy areas need to be realigned to match the 13 counties and the historic town councils should be allowed to be called "borough" councils.
    What utter rubbish - The lord lieutenancy should not be changed and kept to the preserved counties of WALES. The new councils should be 8 - bringing back Dyfed, G W E N T Clwyd - as for identity issues utter garbage, if any identity issues are current with made up stupid names such as Rhonnda-Cynon-Taff, Neath Port Talbot, Caerphilly and Bridgend. BRING BACK GWENT.
    I'm sorry but "Clwyd" is a stupid made-up name and all the others are just re-purposed names that are utterly different to their historic extent. There is no historic justification for returning to an utterly discredited system that lasted a mere 22 years. The 13 counties are what people identify with. Try telling someone in Pembrokeshire that they should have Dyfed back.

    Lieutenancies should be adjusted to the 13 counties if there is to be any hope of salvaging some meaningful identity out of all this mess.
    Clearly YOU have not done your history Clwyd is not a "stupid name" The eight counties of Wales were named after the kings that ruled the land - cas-gwent for example means castle of Gwent. I have already covered the identity - no issues here if any "names" are stupid then it's pembrokeshire, monmouthshire abhorrent names. Also if you bother to check, the Williams report also suggests that new councils are based on the police and health board boundaries and the possibility of being based on EU grant aid boundaries - in other words the WHOLE area of the former COUNTY of Dyfed."
