I did'nt realise that Simon Hughes was the the Editor of the Cricketer.

Anyhow, as a former Middlesex player, mouthing off that we don't exist on radio, and should be referred to as London does him no favours.

Calling us London as he suggests, poses a few problems, as what constitutes the mess called London today, includes large former swathes of Kent, Essex, Surrey and bits of Herts apart from ourselves.

In addition, in 1964, the then Middlesex Members (bless them) voted to retain our County name at the AGM, and not take on the Tory/Labour created mess known today as Greater London.

I would guess that Hughes is throwing his hat in the ring for a job as analyst on the new city franchise gravy train.
