    Jonny, your post sums up the utter mess we are in. We need to detach the notion of local government and county. The county is still Monmouthshire for everyone between the Wye and the Rhymney. I'm not sure what you mean by "recognised Gwent as a county": Recognised by whom?
    Well I have in front of me a V5C(W) from the DVLA Swansea, on changing a vehicle I put Newport S Wales ( as we are not Gwent anymore ) and it came back with Newport Gwent on it !
    Also the majority of correspondence sent to me by post say's Newport Gwent on it !
    So Gwent does exist ????????
    That is from the obsolete Royal Mail database. The Royal Mail themselves abandoned it in the year 2000, but resellers of Royal Mail data add it back in for some reason."
