    Derry to be the new official name of LondonDerry..

    http://www.rte.ie/news/2015/0724/716882-derry/

    A decision by Derry City and Strabane District Council to change the official name of Londonderry to Derry has been described as "sectarian" and "disgusting" by unionists.

    The new move by the council was voted upon at the Guildhall yesterday evening.

    It passed with the full support of Sinn Féin, the SDLP and the Independent councillors, despite opposition from the minority unionist block.

    The council will now write to the Environment Minister Mark H Durkan of the SDLP, who is from the city itself, on how to go about the change.
    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

          Is that the City of Londonderry or the County of Londonderry, or both?
          New infraction avoidance policy: a post may be described as imbecilic, but its author should never be described as an imbecile.

            I learn from the RTE lunchtime news that it's Londonderry City that may be re-named - but only if the necessary application to the Privy Council is successful.

                The Privy Councillors, of course.

                    The great and the good of the British establishment. The Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, select MPs, various House of Lords members etc. If you hear someone being referred to as " The Right Honourable" , then (s)he is a member.
