LOL. The fact that i'm moaning about the fact that my ward doesn't belong in Wallasey is one thing...



They're having a right laugh with that one. Gordon Brown's lost his PPS from Wirral South anyway - nice MP, saw her speak with him on the day of the leadership result before he got to conference.


That is BEAUTIFUL.

Totally unworkable, I mean.  The BCE have done one very good thing - they've managed to do all this without splitting a single ward, anywhere, and that's to be appluaded

However, the consequence is seats like this.

My backyard is Lancashire, where some absolute corkers have been proposed.  Putting Fishwick, one of the most socially and economically challenged wards in England, with the rural expanse of Ribble Valley is tasteless....

Wales is going to be fun isn't it Cheesy


We've got all the way to January to wait for them.....

I wonder how the many cheerleaders for this idiocy are feeling right now.


I've already answered you elsewhere Wink

Is that what they've done, call it "Houghton-le-Spring" ?
580  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 09:58:12 am
They needed to scrap "Rossendale and Darwen". I would not have scrapped it in quite that fashion....
581  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 09:37:34 am
I have a sneaking suspicion that these proposals will not look anything like this in the end.....
582  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 09:28:53 am
That's nothing. Their "Leigh" doesn't include.....Leigh.
583  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 09:14:50 am
The entire thing has been leaked to Guido's "Order Order" website.
584  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 09:06:37 am
I'm hearing Manchester Central has taken Salford city centre, which if true, is utterly mental.

Leigh (Andy Burnham's seat) is also said to have been split into pieces.
585  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Let the great boundary rejig commence on: September 12, 2011, 08:48:10 am
It is pretty much confirmed that the public release will be at midnight on the BCE website. I suspect they wanted to wait until late morning but that has been scuppered by the leaks and rumours

(about which something interesting might come because the Boundary Commission did warn Party Reps that too many rumours and leaks could mean they're not so friendly towards helping them out again....)

I have a feeling it might crash Tongue

So big question....who wants to do the notionals? Cheesy

I have no doubt it will crash.  Log on at about midnight, it'll go under at five-past....

Other rumours leaking out -

*"Doesn't look good for Tim Farron" according to Paul Waugh

"Greater Manchester to cause a stir"

The MP for Brigg and Goole,  a former teacher, has tweeted a request for any teaching jobs.....

MPs have been queing up like students on exam day waiting for their results

Some leaks are coming out from this (as they would)

Gloucester city centre moved into Forest of Dean

And this from journalist Paul Waugh

Sounds like Vince Cable's Twickenham seat being merged with Zac's Richmond Park: cd spell end of St Vince

I tried to watch Murdo's speech on YouTube the other night. His opening jokes.....bombed, frankly. His approach is interesting - lots of "centre right alternative" and "progressive..."


If it didn't sound so clunky, then "Scottish Progressive and Unionist Party" could just about work. If I was in marketing, I'd go for "Progressive Scotland"....

The Trump debacle was in character for him, I suppose. Lots of bluster which came to nothing

With Palin, it's different. She spent the last election talking up her desire to "take on Washington", has been floodin the airwaves with her hints and suggestions ever week since.  To turnaround the year before the election with "I'm not standing after all" would make her look like the biggest WUM in western democracy.
598  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: If Romney wins the nomination, will the Tea Party rally behind him? on: May 22, 2011, 05:58:29 am
If they're pragmatic, the Tea Party will support him.

I can't imagine them running their own candidate, it would so far more damage to them than it would damage either Obama or the GOP candidate.
