  • "There was a reorganisation in 1974 and another in 1996, so we are about due for another. The 1996 reorganisation was done the wrong way up. Instead of breaking up the old counties they should have absorbed the little boroughs into the old county structures. Where there used to be (post 1996) one chief executive and one director for each directorate there became 5 chief execs and 5 of each director.

    The excuse was it would be closer to the electorate. Really? - divide and rule more like.

    As a point of principle I support this move as it cuts back on local government overheads. Who knows - it may slow Wales' slide into oblivion!"
