The following is a letter sent to the Wilts and Glos Standard: 

Dear Editor

SO, THE Local Government Boundary Commission are recommending that some Malmesburians should become Sherstonians.

Another bird brained idea from a section of the Wiltshire Council.

What planet are these people on? How on earth can the town centre of Malmesbury become part of Sherston?

Did these people get their jobs under the Peter principle, (one post above their actual competence)?

Gavin Grant is absolutely right - preposterous.
