The New Review

In Birmingham on September 12, 2011 by dadge

Well, the embargo didn’t survive for long. The one on the English Parliamentary Boundary Review, I mean. Just a few hours after MPs got their copies and the rumours began to swirl, blogger Guido got his hands on the PDFs and posted them on his site.

I went immediately to the West Midlands report, and it’s clear straight away from a quick look at North Birmingham that the rules have changed:

Until today, there is no way the Commission would have recommended such weird constituencies. But David Cameron has told them that equality of electors should trump other factors and so it appears they’ve allowed their computer programs free rein… Should make for fun public meetings! (The Birmingham meetings will be held at the Copthorne Hotel on 3/4 November and you will need to register if you want to take part – I think two days might not quite be enough…)
