people on this site must realise that the historic county of Lancashire still exists and that lancashire stretches from manchester and liverpool and goes up to the lake district,stop pretending that greater manchester,merseyside and cumbria are counties when they are not start putting the right counties the historic ones.
What does "as far as wt is concerned that is not correct" mean that wt can not face the truth that Historic county boundaries were not abolished and still exist,when will this site realise The Historic County Boundaries of Lancashire.
Sub-dividing Lancashire (or any other English county
Is thoroughly unnecessary. Can whoever is creating articles for boroughs within Lancashire please stop until consensus is reached on this talk page to do so. In the meantime, I am redirecting all borough articles back to Lancashire. --Burmesedays 21:31, 25 June 2011 (EDT)
oh what is the point in deleting things which are 100% true?what is the point at all? in future i will be using sites which are correct.i dont understand how people on this site can say that they are not in lancashire when they are.the queen says we re in Lancashire,the prime minister does so if they say we are,we are.i would definitly rather believe someone who is in charge of the country rather than just a few ordinary people who dont know anything about counties. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs)
Burmesedays is entirely right that an issue like this has to be resolved by consensus within the community. I accept there are undoubtedly issues here but it's worth taking time out and considering exactly what they are, and then how they relate to the function of WT. A traveller to Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside might well feel confused by the day to day description of what exactly constitutes Lancashire, and where local government boundaries appear to contradict everyday usage. So to my mind it is appropriate to briefly mention the confusion and contradictions that have lead to this. But I don't think that WT is the place to go into an extended history of changes by government to local authority boundaries and the subsequent nomenclature of these regions. It's certainly not the place to grind axes. Bobf 04:08, 11 September 2011 (EDT)
