    Default Parliamentary Constituency Boundary Changes

    Labour won't be doing well out of this, but I suppost it'd be the other way round if they were in government: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/new...entry-11876335

    Interesting, to say the least. Shame I'm stuck with Fletcher, one of the most useless MPs ever.

    The proposed changes have been released. The 1st map's a bit of a mess, but it looks like Stratford's being combined with Warwick, and Lemington is being shunted together with Southam.

    Warwick District Council isn't happy about the proposals: http://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/n...sals-1-7649875

    The Tories want Kenilworth to join a South Coventry constituency; not that they want to win a Coventry seat at the next election: http://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/n...ntry-1-7705340

    Presumably the game here is to merge a small Tory area like Kenilworth into the large Labour fiefdom of Goeffrey Robinson. The man who has been MP of Coventry since the year dot a millionaire socialist . Interesting.

    Looks like the Leamington/Warwick constituency isn't going to change. Wonder what's going to happen to Stratford as a result.

    I often wonder whether anyone on councils have a map.

    Normally, I'd think that a good move for the Tories, but with the state of the political parties at the moment I'm not so sure. I have a feeling that we're about to see the UK political landscape crayoned all over.
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    Looks like chunks of Leamington & Warwick and Stratford will move over to Kenilworth & Southam: https://stratfordobserver.co.uk/news...reviews-30134/

    Stratford's MP might swap constituencies. Personally, I wont miss him; he's c**p as an MP: https://www.stratford-herald.com/new...uency-9203553/

    Cr*p as an MP? I'd put it far stronger than that. As vaccines minister, he has encouraged fear and terror. Maybe in some future scenario, he'll be before the Hague for his actions?
