Let's create Mercia or Leofric for new authority; Letters.

NO we do not want a 'Greater Birmingham',' nor do we want a 'Coventry / Warwickshire.'.

If, as it appears, the die has been cast, our future now is to stand together against the Westminster power base. This is not being offered to us without an ulterior motive.

To this end we need to forget the short-sighted mentality of us and them.

The power block we should aim for is from Leamington to Nuneaton, along the A5 to Cannock, across to Wolverhampton , and down the M5, M40, and back to Leamington.

This will give a strong power base of the metal manufacturing and wealth producing heart of the UK. The heart that is frequently ask to bail the country out when the so-called City bankers screw up!

There are already existing road and rail links within these boundaries. As to a name, there is either Mercia, a ancient area of the East Midlands, or from a similar period in time, Leofric.

Leofric, a region of the West Midlands, stretched from Chester to Worcester and more than encompassed the proposed area.
