The newly reselected Ann Clwyd is on course to become Labour's oldest ever woman MP.

She chooses to be known by the name of an administrative unit that was created when she was 37 (my age now) and abolished when she was 59.

But she couldn't very well have called herself Ann Flintshire, could she? It's a Kunta Kinte thing.

And who would wish to be called Ann Mold? Does even Ann Mold wish to be called Ann Mold? I very much doubt it.
