AS LONG as Cumbria County Council insists on telling everyone that 'It's Cumbria!' even historically - ie 'Smuggling in 16th Century Cumbria,' and people believe this, we've lost Westmorland and Cumberland.

As they were started by the Ancient Britons, so important historically, we must pressurise MPs to back a law to bring them back to full public use. That is what I'm doing on behalf of the British Counties Campaign.
