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!
