The Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill went through the House of Commons tonight. And the Conservative and Liberal Democrat Coalition, which did everything in its power to oppose the arguments put by Keep Cornwall Whole to prevent the creation of a Devonwall seat, sanctioned another exceptin within the Bill.

It agreed that there should be two seats on the Isle of Wight (with 55,000 votes each instead of the 76,000 quota for everyone else) but continued to refuse to protect the territorial integrity of the historic nation of Cornwall.

Not happy. I will post again soon in more detail, but for now ... hypocrites.
