Could Nick Grey - an employee of Kensington & Chelsea Council! - please share any evidence he has to support his claim of the GLC wasting billions?

I said if they came back they would waste billions.

We cannot afford 3 tiers of government - central, GLC and local in London. What extra value would it add.

Most of the fire risk tower blocks in London were built by the GLC or on former GLC housing estates.

Ok, understood. Just to add that - since 2000 - we have returned to having three tiers of government in London: Whitehall (central/national), Mayoralty (city-wide) & Borough (local).

Returning to chess, it's been well documented on this forum how the 'new' metropolitan areas such as Greater Manchester & Merseside have caused complications when selecting teams for the 'old' counties such as Lancashire. In the London context, Middlesex & Surrey are fairly fluid in their catchment areas. Richmond Council even straddles the traditional boundary between the two: the Thames.

There have been no complications for Lancashire Tom; they select who they like
