The Boundary Commission - The Greatest Tory Gerrymandering since the Rotten Boroughs of 1831

I can't believe that democrats in the country at large and in the commons are prepared to let the politically rigged constituency boundaries smash democratic freedom in this country. The electoral analysis website shows that abolition of 50 seats and loss of 50 MP's would leave the Conservative Party with 297 MP's just 3 MP's short of a majority and in a strengthened position in the commons.
Just look at the 17 Liberal Democrat MP's who adversely affected by boundary changes.

Full analysis here

  • Jenny Wilmott
  • Dan Rogerson
  • Malcolm Bruce
  • Charles Kennedy
  • Tim Farron
  • David Ward
  • Gordon Birtwhistle
  • Tom Brake
  • Annette Brooke
  • Jo Swinson
  • Greg Mullholland
  • Norman Baker
  • John Leech
  • Mike Hancock
  • Ian Swales
  • Paul Burstow
  • Tessa Munt
CAMERON'S LABOUR HIT LIST (you couldn't make this up)

  • Liam Byrne
  • Tessa Jowell
  • Gordon Brown
  • Hillary Benn
  • Andy Burnham
  • John Cryer
  • Michael Meacher
  • David Blunkett
  • Chuka Umunna
  • Tom Watson
 CAMERON'S TORY HIT LIST (anyone spotted a pattern here)

  • Bill Cash
  • Ken Clarke
  • Nadine Dorries
  • Zac Goldsmith
  • Priti Patel
CAMERON'S GREEN HIT LIST (what a surprise)

  • Caroline Lucas

The Conservatives are ensuring that the 600 constituencies will be short of 50 constituencies in all parts of Britain (Wales loses 10 seats, Scotland 7, North of England 13, Midlands 5) whilst only 1 consitutency lost in the Tory Heartlands of the South and South East.

This will leave the Conservatives free if the 2010 result were repeated to patch up a deal with the Ulster Unionists and run the country, on 36% of the vote.

Imagine if the SNP get their way and Scotland leaves the Union. People in England, Wales and Northern Ireland would face a Conservative dominated South of England overpowering the rest of the country.

Those MPs who are being targetted by this anti-democratic government ought to use this chance to vote the  government down and unthrone Cameron during the Olympics to give him a taste of unemployment.
