Northamptonshire rebranded ‘North Londonshire’.
UK: Residents anger as Northamptonshire rebranded ‘North Londonshire’
It’s a mere 90 miles to London and there are only two smallish counties in the way – and these facts appear to have been enough to encourage executives to rebrand Northamptonshire as North Londonshire.
The North Northamptonshire Development Corporation is about to embark on a £1.28 million advertising campaign to attract people and businesses from the capital area.
The idea has worked before. After all, airports do it all the time: there’s London Stansted, London Luton and now there’s even London Oxford.
