Not a county, is it
don’t they have 48 recipes for their baked beans or something?
57 types of ketchup
how many counties do you think there are in Wales?
(don’t answer if you are from Wales)
- 11 - 15
Welsh - all of them

wow all 6!
oh God if there’s like 48 counties in England think how many counties there must be in somewhere like Germany, there’s probably 200!
America has 3,243
would you be happy to consolidate with your neighbouring county to get the number down to a more manageable amount?
- yeah sure!
- no way!
90% confident with this. Always get the north east and all those counties along the Welsh border mixed up

In some ways, everything is because of the Danelaw. Or a surfeit of leeches.
I’ll be merging with Bedfordshire I think which is good because we’ll get the good bins!
