The Commission’s proposals in the south of the county are spot-on.

The only change I’d make around Aylesbury is to swap the Bierton and Haddenham wards. Haddenham obviously has close ties with Aylesbury, but it also has close ties with the villages in the Long Crendon ward, and I’d keep them all together.

When we get to Milton Keynes the message to the Commission is no, no, no. We need to give about 15,000 voters to Buckingham, but they shouldn’t be a random chunk from Bletchley. Walton/Wavendon is a much better, ready-made chunk (coloured green on the map). Then, with the large ward sizes in MK you’d be forgiven for splitting a ward to make two reasonable seats, but by some miracle you don’t have to – the border can fall nicely along the A5, with Stony Stratford/Wolverton/Shenley/Bletchley in the South seat (blue) and the “new city” in the North seat (beige).
