For 30 years it has been removed from maps, signs and even addresses, and we became a part of Cambridgeshire.
It is all very well to keep up hopes, and even to campaign for its reinstatement - after all, the county of Rutland has been brought back into being after having been incorporated into Leicestershire - but we have to deal with the situation as it is, and not as we would like it to be.
