Up here are the boundary commission proposals for London which seem bad news for Labour as the capital loses four seats under what’s planned. Its all officially under wraps but bits for various parts of the country seem to be leaking all over the shop. The safe Ealing Southall seat according to the propsals is carved up, so the ward where I live (presently Conservative Northfield) goes into what it will be a new constituency with the Tory wards of Ealing North – genius. Streatham and Tooting are also amalgamated according to Guido Fawkes. Most of the comments I’ve seen so far all seem to be about Nadine Dorries losing her seat but there’s an interesting post here from Denis McShane having a go at the shady nature of the Commission in a time when we were told there’d be a bonfire of the quangos.

Let’s be under no illusions: the 2010 General Election was already fought on new boundaries. There was no need for another review, the whole point behind this is to keep Labour out of power forever. There is still time for submissions though so if a compelling case is made these need not turn intoi reality. I guess it’d be best to register discontent starting tomorrow when it’s official kick off mind…
