    It sill is. The name of the local council doesn't matter and never has. See monmouthshire-associ

    No it isn't VD. Those who haven't updated there address book for years might think so.
    Hang on, do you really believe that local government defines where places are? What on earth happened before 1889 then? There weren't any county councils then. How did people cope without constant reorganisations? You really must detach in your mind the notion of a geographical construct such as a county and a service-delivery organisation that borrows its name. If the last 40 years of meddling hadn't taught you this already I fear it may be too late. Enjoy "moving" again, whereas the rest of us have lived in Monmouthshire all along...
    If we listened to VD (incidentally he is universally ignored if you have read the comments to stories for any length of time) we'd still live in Siluria."
