See Clegg's seen his backside cos the Tories havn't supported his half baked changes to the House of Lords, and now won't support their proposed changes to constituency boundaries, which would have reduced the number of MPs and created a fairer MP to electorate ratio - which the Tories are now counting on to win the next election. However, whilst imo the Boundary Commission should be independent and be tasked with maintaining equal ratios between the great unwashed and their representatives; without interference by those with a direct interest - namely the politicians. However, according to the TV pundits the irony could be, that in order to increase some partisan "fairness" in Parliament; the Tories may create up to 200 Lords to get the balance they want! Yet another victory for expediency over common sense. :roll:

I think my point is: that for the politicians to decide when and if, they will review boundaries, albeit in this case for partisan parity; it still amounts to interference in the electoral process. Surely the Boundary Commision should operate independently and automatically to maintain equal ratios of representation? :unsure: H: if you look back in history at some of the changes that have occured; you'll find comments such as yours were made at the time! :wink:
