BAD NEWS: Coalition plans for Devonwall seat announced

The “Boundary Commission for England” has today published its recommendations for constituency boundaries for the next General Election.

And, following the refusal of Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs / Lords to protect the territorial integrity of Cornwall, a cross-Tamar Devonwall has been recommended.

They wish it to be called Bideford & Bude and it would include the following Cornwall Council divisions: Altarnun, Bude North and Stratton, Bude South, Camelford, Flexbury and Poughill, Launceston Central, Launceston North, Launceston South, Poundstock, St Teath, Tintagel.

It has been well reported that there is a growing anxiety amongst MPs about the final outcome of the boundary review and it has been suggested that many, who face losing their seats and livelihoods, might oppose the legislation.

Now is the time for us to use this announcement to put pressure on the Coalition and their MPs to oppose the changes which will need to be agreed by Parliament.

Now is the time to fight back and to do all in our power to undermine the legislation.
