  • "Lyndon I am fully aware that "Clwyd" is named after a river, but the point is it is a made-up name in the same way that Avon, Humberside, Merseyside, Tayside, &c. are. It has no historical provenance before 1974.
    Nobody under the age of 50 identifies with colonial counties abolished 40 years ago. Nobody but you gives a rat's backside about "lieutenancies".

    Actually, I am under 40 and I identify with the real counties, not administrative contrivances. Additionally I think you'll find that the "Gwent lovers" give a rat's backside about "lieutenancies" because in their mind it proves that Gwent continues to exist."
