Forced abolition of the ‘City of Londonderry’?

Beano notes the Nationalist Derry City Council is going to High Court to enforce the abolition of the old name of the city, Londonderry, in advance of their own abolition in favour of a larger council. Such ‘revisionism’ he argues indicates “that victory, rather than equality, is the agenda for Sinn Fein”, with the SDLP happy to follow in behind. El Blogador says it’s all a matter of history.
