The council 76 times larger than North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is England's largest county, at a pretty hefty 3,340 square miles. However, that is just an administrative dot compared to what might be coming to the upper reaches of Greenland if some administrative reforms go through, as North-Greenland Council would be 76 times larger at 254,827 square miles.

Put another way, NGC would be almost three times the size of the UK. Turning up in person to complain about bin collection or collecting a clamped car could be a bit of a pain.

Sticking with local government, I have just received a letter about the council tax, addressed - as God is my witness - to a town called 'Croyon'.

Marginally better than 'Crayon', though.
