The London boroughs of Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea said all their services could be merged to generate savings of between 50million and 100million a year.
Every service from chief executive and senior directors to street cleaners and social workers could be shared, they said, in a joint statement.
Under the plans, each authority would keep its council leaders and local ward councillors.

Southwark et al?

I would prefer to join Westminster or Wandsworth because they have the smallest council tax!

its a good idea because there is far too much duplication in local govt, too many councilors and too many bureaucrats. however the thought of being annexed to the likes of lewisham or lambeth is scary

Plans are already in the pipeline for Southwark...

'The Cities of London and Southwark' is brilliant! They complement each other like Manhattan and New Jersey.

It would be Lambeth. But what would the joint borough be called? Lambeth & Southwark? Or would a coin be tossed?
