Bright Lights, Big City

Good luck to the capitals of the Cayman Islands and the Falkland Islands as they seek city status to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year. 

My own birthplace, the capital of Saint Helena, has been a city since 1859. For the Diamond Jubilee, it ought to seek Lord Mayor status. Your nominations, please, for the position of Lord Mayor of Jamestown.

Oh, and how come Durham does not have a Lord Mayor? The Mayor of Durham has a role in the Coronation, so why not? Let's put that right next year, too.


  1. I am having a good laugh imagining who could be Lord Mayor of Durham.
