Why do we now live in Lond and not London?

Have you noticed that lots of official signs around the place and on advertising boards and buses have logos for "Mayor of Lond on" ?

Am I missing something or is it just another example from the PR geniuses who advised the Post Office to change to Consignia ?

One thing for sure, the bill for this nonsense wasn't cheap and we are the mugs paying for it...

Wasn't sure if this was a serious query, or a ironic rant.

If the former - it comes from the tourist campaign "Visit London" lauched by the Mayor in 2002, following the reduced tourist numbers in the aftermath of 9/11. Visit London is the new name for London Tourist Board and Convention Bureau - which has overall responsibility for promoting London as a tourist venue.

I think the "Totally Lond on" bit was part of a campaign which showed London as always having something "on".

If the latter, I'm not really in a position to comment on whether it's a good slogan or not - but I'm a fan of the Visit London website for info on non-SE1 events (http://www.visitlondon.com), and they recently voted Borough Market as best thing to do in London !
