Fair enough. The county system, after all, was imposed on Wales after its conquest (call it what you will, a spade is a spade), rather than being an organic growth as in England and (AFAIK) Scotland. Naturally it will tend to compete with the pre-English system as well as the post-1974 muddle. -- All Norstrilians knew what laughter was: John Cowan it was "pleasurable corrigible malfunction". --Cordwainer Smith, _Norstrilia_
